The Common Folk Collections: No. 1 Dutch Renaissance Revisited – Biography
While reading about the painters of the Dutch Renaissance I was fascinated to learn that master painter Peter Paul Rubens not only reworked (fancy term for copied) the paintings of famous artists who had gone before him, but he also employed several assistants in his studio to work on the large paintings he was commissioned to create (of course he typically would sketch and do the touch up work). In light of this little tidbit and since White Collar will be returning soon, I thought this little video would be a perfect way to begin wrapping up our series.
Have you ever wondered if you were staring at a forgery when you were admiring a painting in a museum?
