Part 4: stem to steAm: The Science of Art: Italian Paintings - Is it

Italian Paintings - Is it "Real?"

Based on examples from the paintings collection, participants will focus on distinguishing the characteristics of a “real” Renaissance work from a forgery.  While an image from the 14th to the 17th century may appear characteristic of the period, the materials that produced that image could actually be from a later era. Participants will hear how conservators analyze the materials and specific details in a painting to detect clues that lead to the discovery of fakes.
