Most art collector’s dream of discovering a lost masterpiece and I have had some “wonderful” stories and situations come through my front door. While many are expecting to hit the lottery (see my episode on Keeping Up With The Kardashians on the Media Page), many are digging for hidden details that uncover lost stories from the past.
Infrared technology often is the tool of choice but x-radiography is also used, mostly in older paintings. This short video demonstrates that no technology is the magic bullet in discovering the lost details but that it takes knowledge and using, sometimes, all the tools available.
Ultraviolet visible fluorescence was used in this case and the celebrity owner (Balky from Perfect Strangers) closes the video with a short testimonial.
