Show of Modernist artists postponed over forgery concerns

By: J.S., STA

The National Museum was to put on display 160 works of art but postponed the opening after experts voiced forgeries concerns about a private collection from a Slovenian family really having works by Picasso, Matisse or Kandinsky.

“These are blatant fakes,” is how prominent art critic Brane Kovič described the works. The museum’s director Pavel Car claims he saw the certificates proving the authenticity of the works and accused critics of jumping to conclusions, but still decided to cancel the show.
