Husain via BBC NewsA French man has been arrested on charges of selling fake paintings by “The Picasso of India”, MF Husain. The man, identified as “Sofiane B”, was arrested when a Parisian art dealer said he bought two of the fakes for more than €100,000. Police believe he took advantage of Husain, who was 95 when he died last year, and convinced him to sign paintings done by others. They believe he has flooded the market with fakes since 2004.Read the story via BBC
