£100,000 ‘painting’ to go up in smoke


A British businessman has been told that a painting for which he paid £100,000 would be burned under French law after it was ruled a fake. Martin Lang bought what he thought was an original work by Russian-born artist Marc Chagall in 1992.

His son called in experts from BBC One’s ‘Fake Or Fortune?’ to examine it, and the painting underwent tests to determine whether it was genuine. It was sent to the Chagall Committee in Paris, who said it was fake and would be burned under French law. — PTI
