The Faun

The Art Institute of Chicago discovered that "The Faun," alleged to be a 19th Century work by French artist Paul Gauguin, is a forgery. The sculpture was purchased a decade ago from a London dealer. One of the members of the Greenhalgh family confessed it was a forgery when questioned by police from Scotland Yard.
