In a second series of The Art Detectives, one of the world’s leading art detectives, Dr Bendor Grosvenor, and leading social historian, Emma Dabiri, track down lost and hidden art treasures to restore, resurrect and rehang. Astonishingly, more than 175,000 paintings in public ownership are languishing in storage, and at least 40,000 of these paintings are unattributed. We don’t know who painted them or what their subject is – they are unsolved mysteries. However, Bendor has made his name specialising in identifying these ‘sleepers’ and he and Emma are determined to bring them back to life.
