After Samuel Palmer. ...
Last month, self-confessed imitator of paintings Tom Keating emerged from hiding to reveal that there are many more of his works in circulation in addition to the Samuel Palmer pictures.
David Gould , the expert who discovered the Palmer imitations, and who stayed firmly in the background during the journalistic revelations, now makes his first appearance to show Arena the process of identifying and analysing suspected pictures.
We follow some of the scientific detective work on paintings, and look to the future discovery of more ' masterpieces'.
