There is a question that often arises studying artworks. Is it an
original or is it a fake? This conference cycle refers to Painting,
Engraving and Furniture, and is focused on two different points of
view: the analysis of the material and the formal attributions,
which permits to distinguish fakes from original work, and the study
of the consequences of these qualifications in the conservation,
exhibition and market of artworks.
