Faked, Forgotten, Found: Five Renaissance Paintings Investigated

Published July 28, 2014

This fascinating exhibition showcases conservators' forensic analysis of five Renaissance paintings in the Carnegie Museum of Art's collection. Learn how curators and conservators discovered a portrait of Isabella de' Medici attributed to Alessandro Allori beneath the surface of a work repainted in the 19th century, or how to tell the museum’s genuine painting by Francesco Francia apart from later imitations and copies. The discoveries about each work are presented through extensive multimedia documentation, highlighting a fascinating but little-seen aspect of museum practice.
