101: MONET MONET MONET
In the art world Monet means money. But in order to make big bucks, paintings thought to be by Monet must be accepted into the official register, the catalogue raisonne - a five-volume tome which lists every Monet in existence. For the last 18 years, art collector David has been imploring the Wildenstein family who publishes the catalog to accept his painting as a genuine Monet. Despite his research and support of the world's heavyweight Monet scholars, Guy Wildenstein refuses to accept the painting. Is it or is it not a Monet?
