The Art of Copying vs. Forgery by Carole Yee – April 21

April 21 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Examples from the Freer Gallery Collection Zoom Presentation by Carole Yee (Docent). The Freer Gallery has Chinese brush paintings clearly given attribution to the master, others copied in the style of the master’s work, and works which are clear forgeries. A question to be discussed is whether one should appreciate a copy of a master’s painting any less than the original. Insight into the importance of copying techniques and appreciation of such creations are the subject of the tour.
