Antoinette Le Falher, director of the Museum of Naïve Art and Singular Arts Laval in Mayenne announced Monday. The painting entitled Landscape with Fisherman and attributed to Douanier Rousseau, which had been anonymously deposited in 2017 in the Laval museum, is a forgery.

"I did some research in the galleries of these galleries and it turns out that this work has never been exhibited in these galleries, explained to France Blue MayenneAntoinette Le Falher. The signature contains titanium white, which was marketed only a few years after the death of Douanier Rousseau … "This leaves no room for doubt.

Offered in 2017

As a reminder, in August 2017, a mysterious donor, disappointed to see too few paintings of Douanier Rousseau in this Laval museum, had anonymously deposited this work attributed to the great painter from the Mayenne city.
