What can we learn from the backs of works of art?


 

What information is hidden on the back of a work of art? Normally we do not have the opportunity to see this part of the work. Whether the piece is in an exhibition or is reproduced in a catalogue, the back is always hidden. This talk will uncover the important data located on the back of artworks, such as: its technical history, the signature of the artist, any restoration interventions, its origins and the story of its life.
