How Do Copies and Forgeries Affect Art History?

Are fakes and copies a threat for the art historian, or can they lead to new discoveries? What techniques allow experts to authenticate works of art and separate copies and fakes from ‘the real thing’ today? And is the notion of ‘authenticity’ only a modern concern as far as works of art are concerned?

Book now to hear world authority on Leonardo da Vinci Martin Kemp (Emeritus Professor, University of Oxford), celebrated philosopher and art historian Jacqueline Lichtenstein (Université Paris-Sorbonne), Thierry Lenain (author of the fascinating Art Forgery: The History of a Modern Obsession) and Cambridge University’s Jean-Michel Massing debate these issues and get the chance to ask them questions!
