One of the most distinguished experts on van Gogh and Cezanne sums up a lifetime of research and discoveries.
In the art trade, research and judgment meet in a special way. Good or bad, genuine or fake--these are questions that often prove to be more urgent and to have more repercussions than in the academic field.
This is especially true when it comes to the two great forerunners of modern art: van Gogh and Cezanne. Unrecognized outsiders in their lifetime, their paintings grew in the twentieth century to be the most sought after and expensive works in the entire art market. How this astonishing development came about, what tangled paths these paintings took, and what fakes and false attributions played a part in this--these are the subjects Walter Feilchenfeldt discusses, with the advantage of his forty years of experience as an international adviser in the art trade. He explores a great number of new sources of provenance and deals with questions of authenticity on the basis of direct comparison. 500 illustrations, 387 in color.

Walter Feilchenfeldt entered his family's art dealing firm forty years ago and runs it to this day. He gained a formidable reputation as a scholar through his participation on John Rewald's catalogue raisonne of Cezanne's paintings, which Thames & Hudson published in 1996, and is deeply involved in the forthcoming major exhibitions marking the centenary of Cezanne's death.
