  Friend who inherited Bacon's £11m fortune went on 11-year spending spree
Despite a reputation for being difficult, Francis Bacon did - in death at least - live up to his celebrated toast of "Champagne for my real friends, real pain for my sham friends".

  Landmark Van Gogh receives thumbs-up from the law, but will the disputed painting ever find a buyer?
A 10-year legal saga has ended in Paris after the Cour de Cassation, the highest court in France, pronounced that Van Gogh’s “Jardin à Auvers” is authentic.
