This event, co-hosted with the Telluride Foundation, features two experts in the art world: Rachel Kaminsky, a New York-based art dealer, and Silvia A. Centeno, a research scientist at The Metropolitan Museum of Art (The Met) in New York. Their presentations will cover areas of art history, conservation research, connoisseurship, provenance, and the increasingly important role of scientific analysis in the investigation of works of art. Ms. Kaminsky will show how some of these tools have exposed the most audacious art forgeries of the 20th and 21st century, while Dr. Centeno will draw from her experience at The Met to discuss how cutting-edge tools of analysis are able to delve beneath paintings’ surfaces to reveal surprising information unseen by the naked eye.
