A nineteenth-century painting by the French artist Paul Delaroche surfaced on the BBC television program, Fake or Fortune. The work was acquired by the collector and dealer, Neil Wilson, in 1989 at Christie’s, but at the time, was unsigned and unattributed. Wilson, who passed away in 2014, had more than a sneaking suspicion that the painting was by Delaroche. The work, which is estimated to be worth between $65,000 and $98,000, was brought to the BBC by Wilson’s widow.
