Van Gogh 'lost' sketches publisher threatens legal action

A man leafs through the pages of a book of drawings apparently by Vincent Van GoghThe French publishers of a book of “lost” Vincent Van Gogh sketches on Monday threatened legal action against a Dutch museum that has questioned the authenticity of the works. The threat follows the publication in six countries last month of “Vincent Van Gogh, the fog of Arles: the rediscovered sketchbook” in which sketches apparently from the artist’s legendary stay in the southern French city are reproduced. The Vincent Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, however, has dismissed the sketches as fakes triggering a war of words with publishing house Le Seuil.
