This course will examine issues of authenticity in works of art including forgeries, unethical restorations, and misattributions. Case studies on works from the Renaissance through Contemporary art will provide a forum for evaluating the relative strengths and weaknesses of conservation science, provenance, and connoisseurship in settling such disputes. This course will include presentations from an art lawyer, a Christie’s specialist, and close examination of artworks at the auction house.
