Dutch police have arrested a man suspected of trying to sell a fake Vincent van Gogh painting with a multimillion-euro price tag.

The 56-year-old, whose identity was not released – in line with Dutch privacy law – was arrested on suspicion of fraud for attempting to sell what he claimed was a study for the Dutch master’s painting The Harvest.

Amsterdam’s Van Gogh Museum is partnering with Fujifilm Belgium to debut museum certified editions of Vincent Van Gogh masterpieces. Collectively known as the Van Gogh Museum Edition, the collection includes ‘Almond Blossoms’ (1890), ‘Boulevard de Clichy’ (1887), ‘The Harvest’ (1888), ‘Sunflowers’ (1889) and ‘Wheatfield under Thunderclouds’ (1890). The works will debut at the LA Art Show on January 15, 2014 as part of Tribute International’s booth.

Visitors will preview the most advanced technique used to replicate Van Gogh’s art in full three-dimensional detail. Developed by Fujifilm Belgium, Reliefography combines a precise three-dimensional edition of the painting’s actual surface texture with a high-resolution print. Each Van Gogh piece has been produced as a limited edition of 260. The starting price for each piece in the edition is $35,000.

The Van Gogh Museum will keep 50 pieces from each edition to be used for educational purposes and potentially to provide a new way for visually impaired people to experience art.
