French Team Concludes Chun’s Painting is Fake

French art experts say they have a high degree of certainty a well-known painting by South Korean artist Chun Kyung-ja is a fake.

The French team says there's only a zero-point-0002 percent possibility the work "Beautiful Woman" was actually painted by Chun, who died last year.

South Korean prosecutors said Friday French art experts at Lumiere Technology arrived at their conclusion through painstaking comparisons of "Beautiful Women" with other works certified as authentic.

The team's report is being translated into Korean for use in an ongoing probe, expected to conclude relatively soon.

The painting in question is decades old, and while she was alive Chun did insist it was not her work.
