Series 1 - 4. Hidden Lives of Works of Art: Poussin

About this programme

4/5. A panel of experts examine French classical painter Nicolas Poussin's The Flight into Egypt, a devotional piece currently housed at the Musee des Beaux-Arts de Lyon, the home of the man thought to have been its sponsor. However, the assessment raises interesting questions about the painting's authenticity, history and 17million euro price-tag.
