Fake or Fortune? Season 6 Air Dates

S06E01 - Constable Air Date: 20 August 2017 18:05 -

Sorry, but right now we don't have any sources for this episode.

The team try to find out whether a beautiful English landscape is a work of national importance - a lost masterpiece by John Constable and quite possibly an alternative view of his greatest work, The Hay Wain. Now owned by a Gloucestershire businessman, the painting appears to have all the hallmarks of Constable's sketches - his more impressionistic, preparatory works. If genuine, it could be worth at least £2 million. There are few more iconic paintings in British art than Constable's The Hay Wain. A picture with a direct link to this milestone in British art would be the holy grail for any collector or museum and the picture appears to depict the very same scene, Willy Lot's cottage on the banks of the River Stour. The trouble is, Constable is one of the most faked artists of the 19th century, and the painting has a chequered past. Thirty years ago, several top Constable experts decided that it was not an authentic work. It is a particularly personal case for Philip Mould, who briefly owned the painting in the past but had to let it slip through his fingers after he failed in his attempts to prove its authenticity. Now scientific analysis techniques have moved on and neglected records can be searched more
deeply online, can the latest advances and deep research into the picture's provenance turn up enough

S06E02 - Tom Roberts Air Date: 03 September 2017 19:00 -

Sorry, but right now we don't have any sources for this episode.

The Fake Or Fortune team embark on their furthest-flung investigation, as they head to Australia to see if they can prove that an online purchase from an English auction site is a lost work by Tom Roberts, considered one of Australia's greatest artists.

S06E03 - Gauguin Air Date: 10 September 2017 19:00 -

Sorry, but right now we don't have any sources for this episode.

The Fake Or Fortune team are on the trail of two pictures brought to their attention by viewers, both believed to be by Paul Gauguin – one of the giants of 19th century art. Could two lost works have surfaced in a Cambridgeshire village and a suburb of Manchester?

S06E04 - Episode 4 Air Date: 17 September 2017 19:00 -

Sorry, but right now we don't have any sources for this episode.

The Fake or Fortune team investigate their first piece of sculpture as they try and prove that a strikingly abstract piece of plaster is a missing work by Alberto Giacometti, one of the world's greatest sculptors.

Twentieth century sculptures are a hot property in the art market, with Giacometti's Pointing Man figure selling for $141m at auction in New York in 2015, making it the most expensive sculpture ever sold.

Could a stark white square of plaster that has been passed down through an English family with art world connections be one of Giacometti's earliest and most daring works?
