Fake Or Fortune - Series 7

5 x 1hr

BBC Studios

Every picture tells a story but none quite like these

Fake or Fortune? returns for a seventh series as art detectives Philip Mould and Fiona Bruce investigate more thrilling cases of art world mystery, intrigue and deception.

Artworks under investigation this series include a previously unknown drawing by Henry Moore with a difficult provenance – it’s the only work by a British artist to emerge from the controversial Gurlitt Hoard, an art collection of 1500 paintings amassed during the Second World War by Nazi art dealer Hildebrand Gurlitt.

The team also examine four sketchbooks thought to be the work of the young Toulouse Lautrec; investigate a double whodunit in Scotland where the identities of the artists behind two paintings steeped in mystery remain uncertain; seek to resolve whether an alleged still life by William Nicholson is indeed one his works, and, in a first for the team, investigate whether a stark white square of plaster could be a missing work by one of the world’s greatest sculptors, Alberto Giacometti.
