Art Theft

Despite the claims in this People Magazine article on Stunt's collection of brand new fakie-doo's, there is not a chance that the Wildenstein Institute of Paris would have authenticated a spurious 1882 quasi copy of a what aspires to be a 1915 Lily pad scene.

Prince Charles has been dragged into a counterfeit art scandal after it was revealed that classic works of art displayed at his Dumfries House estate in Scotland were allegedly painted by an American forger.

The Ayrshire house — which dates back to 1635 — has been part of the future King’s architectural and artistic program, The Prince’s Foundation, since 2007. On Sunday, it was revealed to have been the location of one of the most incredible art hoaxes in royal history when American artist — and convicted counterfeiter — Tony Tetro told the Mail on Sunday that he forged a Monet, Picasso and Dali loaned to the house with an insurance value of $134 million.

Since the allegations appeared, the artworks have been removed from view.

“Dumfries House accepts artwork on loan from time to time from individuals and organizations such as the Scottish National Gallery,” a Prince’s Foundation spokesman told PEOPLE in a statement.
