Antiques Roadshow Shocks a Man With New Information About His Painting

On the BBC show Antiques Roadshow a man shows up with a copy of a painting by official war artist William Orpen painted during WWI. The painting turns out to be far more interesting and valuable than even the appraiser realized.

I love this story about the artist William Orpen and how his painting The Spy caused court marshal proceedings against him, and how he got out of them. Please read the full story on Mathew Innis’s blog Underpaintings.
