Vincent Van Gogh is one of the most tragic artists of all-time.
During his lifetime he sold no paintings. After less than ten years of serious painting, Van Gogh took his own life with a shot to the head – having sliced off one of his ears a couple of years earlier. But now everyone wants a piece of Van Gogh.
Many Van Gogh paintings bought by museums around the world have turned out to be fakes. The Van Gogh Museum is called upon to authenticate. However, even they have been fooled. In this special documentary, an artist tries to fool the masters of authenticating The Master.
