Winslow Homer Fake?
Tomorrow's episode of Fake or Fortune features this painting by Winslow Homer: Three Children Under A Palm. It was found dumped by a rubbish tip with some other paintings. Fifteen years later its finder, Tony, took these paintings to BBC1's Antiques Roadshow, where Philip Mould recognized this one as an unknown Winslow Homer worth £30,000. As Homer is one of the greats of American art, it could be worth $250,000 in a US auction. But is it genuine and who really owns it? Another fascinating detective story with Fiona Bruce and Philip Mould in Fake or Fortune on BBC1 at 7pm (title link).
