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 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 terracotta, ivory, and enameled objects to reveal some of the questions that have been asked and the techniques used to answer them.
The Walters Art Museum brings art and people together for enjoyment, discovery and learning.
We strive to create a place where people of every background can be touched by art.
