Fake! - Four Corners

Little Cezanne doodle - Stefan Maguran
This post follows the Four Corners investigation on fakes aired on 8 June.
The transcript can be read here:
With an estimated 10% of the art offered for sale being fakes, it is very important for the art collector to be very cautious when buying art. Provenance is the magic word here.
In future posts I will talk to you about this in more detail.
The bottom line is that if you think you'll make lots of money buying big names, you are sadly mistaken.
Look for emerging artists. And be a winner.
