A Man Trying to Sell Fake Van Gogh Painting Arrested in the Netherlands
The suspect tried to sell a fake The Harvest for €15 mln.
The 56-year-old, whose identity was not released, was arrested on suspicion of fraud for attempting to sell the painting he claimed was Vincent van Gogh’s.
The Guardian reports that the suspect wanted €15 mln for the painting.
He also offered forged documents purporting to be from the Van Gogh Museum to vouch for the work’s authenticity.
Police and prosecutors said that before the suspect was arrested buyers in several countries had expressed interest in the painting.
