Homes raided after Museum of Fine Arts in Ghent cancels exhibition of avant-garde works
Homes across Belgium have been raided by police investigating allegations that counterfeit Russian avant-garde works were exhibited at the Museum of Fine Arts in Ghent.
The display of 26 pieces, loaned by the Russian businessman Igor Toporovski, was terminated by the gallery in January after experts claimed it was full of fakes. The museum’s director, Catherine de Zegher, was suspended from her post earlier this month.
