The Times (South Africa) - - WORLD - © The Daily Tele­graph

AU­THOR­I­TIES in Genoa, Italy, have con­fis­cated 21 sus­pect art­works sup­pos­edly by Amedeo Modigliani af­ter find­ing that sev­eral paint­ings show­cased in a ma­jor ex­hi­bi­tion at the Doge’s Palace were prob­a­bly fakes.

The foun­da­tion spon­sor­ing the show shut down the ex­hi­bi­tion three days early to col­lab­o­rate with the lat­est in­ves­ti­ga­tion en­velop­ing the Ital­ian ex­pres­sion­ist painter and sculp­tor, one of the world’s most fa­mously faked artists. —
