The Musée Terrus in the South of France is dedicated to the French 19th Century artist Étienne Terrus, and has about 160 works by him. But sadly it appears that half the collection is fake, as many news outlets have reported. The fake works seem to have been bought over the last 20 years, which would suggest that there's an enterprising faker on the loose somewhere in the South of France.
