Part 3: stem to steAm: The Science of Art: Medieval and Renaissance - What is a Fake?

Medieval and Renaissance: What is a Fake?

Using technical studies of works in the Walters collection, participants will attempt to answer the question: What is a fake?  Conservators, conservation scientists, and curators all study works of art from different perspectives.  When their observations are focused on a single work of art, many questions can be answered, but others - often concerning authenticity and dating- can also surface.  This session will use case studies with terra cotta, ivory and enameled objects to reveal some of the questions that have been addressed and the techniques used to answer them.
