Virtual Lunchtime Lecture: Authenticity, Fakes, and Misconceptions in Art

Fakes and forgeries fascinate us, but what are we really talking about? Outright forgeries do exist, but misconceptions, mistakes, and mysteries are much more common. Join this lunchtime lecture with NCMA Conservator Perry Hurt for a wide-ranging talk about authentic artwork, fakery, and the large gray area in between.
