Colin Gleadell updates the story of the rediscovered Vuillard painting that didn’t sell last week:
The oval painting of women seated in a Parisian café by Edouard Vuillard, was investigated by the BBC after the Wildenstein Institute refused to confirm its authenticity. The owner, Keith Tutt, had acquired it in a sale in Norfolk in 2007 for £11,000. However, in a riveting piece of detective work, the Fake or Fortune team managed to establish its authenticity through provenance research and forensic analysis. The only thing they seemingly got wrong was the price.
