Oh dear! Still if most experts reckon its a bloody good painting that deserves to hang in a national gallery then does it really matter who put brush to canvas?

A £7m Rembrandt painting that is hanging in a Liverpool art gallery may be a fake, an expert has claimed.
Rembrandt expert Professor Ernst van de Wetering said the 1629 painting, Self Portrait As A Young Man, was probably painted by a pupil of the Dutchman.

He said the work, which has hung in Liverpool’s Walker Art Gallery for the past 50 years, is “primitive”.

A spokesman for the Walker Art Gallery said the professor’s view was an “opinion amongst many”.
