"Still life with Carnations" is viewed at the Detroit Institute of Arts in Detroit, Thursday, Nov. 18, 2010. When the painting, attributed to Vincent Van Gogh, was bequeathed to the Detroit Institute of Arts in 1990, museum officials said they didn't think it was authentic. The museum was immediately suspicious of "Still Life With Carnations," an unsigned still life, and never put it on exhibit. Still, the painting was studied extensively and now will be displayed as part of a new exhibit opening Nov. 21 titled "Fakes, Forgeries, and Mysteries" about how experts figure out whether art works are authentic. less
