IAC22 PP - Seeking the Truth: Forensic Authentication Through Signatures and Composition

Back to Package

Session Description

Art, historical documents and statuary are often counterfeited for monetary gain. An incomplete provenance on an object can make it challenging to appraise works. How can forensics assist in developing proof of fraudulence or alternatively help show likelihood of genuineness? This interactive discussion will attempt to help define what is possible through the forensic scientific examination of signatures/inscriptions, paint pigments, compositional analysis, and aging of questioned works of art.
