Although an artist can carefully control what is viewed on the surface of a painting, accelerator techniques used by physicists can reveal what’s hidden beneath. Join us to discuss how physics can be used in the analysis of “seeing” below the surface of a painting. We’ll explore how analysis using accelerator techniques coupled with an understanding of pigments has aided in restoring art as well as exposing forgeries. We will discuss case studies that have changed the art world’s perspective on many paintings and artists.
