Recap - Episode Three
Danny plays art dealer as the gang pick sharp-tongued gallery owner, Meredith Gates (Orla Brady), as their next mark. Gates is a huge fan of artist Piet Mondrian and thinks nothing of splashing out £250,000 on one of his paintings. Mondrian famously went from picture-postcard paintings to abstracts some time after Picasso and, as Danny explains to the team, if a Mondrian were discovered in the Abstract style pre-dating Picasso, it would turn the art world on its head. The gang enlists the help of top art forger,Tip Jones (Brian Pettifer), to paint a new Mondrian which will fool even the most knowledgeable experts long enough for the team to get their payout. However, Gates is very astute when it comes to art and it seems that the team may have bitten off more than they can chew with the feisty collector; they have to be on top of their game if theyre going to come out of this one unscathed.
