Today, Vincent van Gogh’s works regularly sell for millions of dollar at anauction or on sale by auction, and he has been considered as one of the world’s greatest people. At the same time, his paintings were so valuable that a German was Otto Wacker who organized an important scam with his works in 1927. In the event that Wacker claimed to have 33 works by van Gogh, there were dealers who lined up. Forgery was not convicted in 1932, after the five years of studying these works by many curators and artistes, Wacker was not convicted. Because Wacker used the newest developments in chemistry to create fakes, it took so long for analysis. In the paintings, six of them were found to be authentic.
