An art dealer has admitted intentionally selling fakes of paintings by a famous Cornish artist for tens of thousands of pounds.
David Carter, 58, of Prospect Close, Hayle, pleaded guilty to seven counts of fraud at Truro Crown Court.
He dishonestly claimed the works, which sold for up to £50,000, had been created by celebrated painters such as Alfred Wallis.
An investigation was launched after a complaint to trading standards.
I hope you got a refund. What a dastardly chap.
