The Murky World of Art Auctions – Caravaggio

Here is a fascinating little story about a Caravaggio painting sold at Sotheby’s. Is it an original and worth £10 Million? Who knows but this is high stakes money in the art world that we are given an occasional glimpse into via the wonderful BBC series ‘Fake or Fortune’. Where Philip Mould, Bendor Grosvenor and Fiona Bruce try to validate an attribution to an artists work. Stunning.
