Faked Watercolor Painting may be burned in France

Twenty years ago, a British collector purchased a Marc Chagall watercolor of reclining nude for £100,000 dated early 20th century. Chagall was one of the most influential modernist painters. His work often sells for millions of dollars. To his surprise, when the collector submitted the work to a French committee, it turned out it is a forgery. Furthermore, the faked painting should be burned under French law in order to protect artist’s authentic works.
