STEM to STEAM: The Science of Art Part 4

Italian Paintings: Is It “Real?”

Using 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 might appear characteristic of the period, the materials that produced that image might actually be from a later era. Participants will learn how conservators analyze the materials and specific details in a painting to detect clues that lead to the discovery of fakes.
