he acquisitions policy employed by the Rubens House continues to turn up surprises, and after the announcement of the Clara Serena portrait, the museum has now brought a newly discovered Van Dyck to Antwerp. The work is a study for a portrait that was revealed to be an original Van Dyck during a 2013 episode of the BBC’s Antiques Roadshow. That way the Rubens House has brought the most valuable discovery of this television show to Antwerp on permanent loan. Visitors can see the painting as of today.

In 2013 nothing less than a miracle happened to Jamie MacLeod, a priest from Derbyshire, UK. A painting that he had bought for 500 euros was unveiled as a ‘genuine’ Anthony Van Dyck on the popular TV program Antiques Roadshow.

On Monday night's episode of "Antiques Roadshow," a very special portrait painted by American artist and sculptor Frederic Remington was given a price tag even the owner couldn't believe.

"This piece, together with the letter, would be something that I would value at auction between $600,000 and $800,000," said appraiser Colleene Fesko on "Antiques Roadshow."

"Oh my goodness! I was hoping I would be wildly exuberant. I am," said Ty Dodge, the painting's owner.

Digging up forgotten treasure in grandma's dusty attic sounds like a tale too good to be true.

But for some, that dream has become a reality. The popular PBS television series "Antiques Roadshow" has earned some local antique owners a small fortune. From art to toys to clothes, people bring in all sorts of goodies to be professionally appraised by experts. Most leave in disappointment, but a lucky bunch have walked away with more than expected.

It was the most valuable piece of artwork ever identified in the 36-year history of the Antiques Roadshow.

But the triumph of discovering a rare 17th-century Van Dyck painting was deflated last night after the work failed to sell at auction.

Fiona Bruce, the show's presenter, first spotted the oil painting in December last year and had a hunch it could be a genuine piece by the Flemish artist. After restoration work the painting, called "Head Study of a Man in a Ruff," was verified by a leading authority on Van Dyck.

The Wildlife Conservation Society is pleased to learn that Antiques Roadshow on PBS will no longer feature carved ivory tusks on air. In addition, the show has removed past appraisals from the series archive.

“On behalf of WCS and all of the 96 Elephants campaign partners, we commend Antiques Roadshow on their decision to cease appraisals of ivory tusks,” said John Calvelli, Wildlife Conservation Society Executive Vice President of Public Affairs and Director of WCS’s 96 Elephants Campaign. “It is vital to the survival of this iconic species that we limit the demand of ivory products. These policies are an important step in assuring these items are not glorified on-air and the assumed monetary value is not a factor. We look forward to working with Antiques Roadshow in the coming months.”

An artist's work is more valuable if they have a short life, a torrid romantic affair or go mad, a leading art expert has said. He suggests it would "not be a bad thing" commercially if certain painters were to die young.

Philip Hook, a senior director at Sotheby's and former Antiques Roadshow expert, said a short life made the price of a piece of art rise, avoiding the tricky "late period" of older artists.

Saying "no-one would want" British artist David Hockney to have died young, he conceded it is likely that it would have made his work more valuable.
