Treasures on Trial

"Treasures on Trial: The Art and Science of Detecting Fakes" reveals some of the most clever and most costly deceptions of our time by pairing diverse examples of fake objects with conservation science from Winterthur's own Scientific Research and Analysis Lab, alongside the research of several other leading conservation scientists in the country. Visitors will see more than 40 examples of fakes and forgeries from the Winterthur collection, as well as, public and private sources and discover the motives for their creation and the evidence used in their detection.

This exciting exhibition is on view at Winterthur Museum from April 1, 2017 through January 7, 2018.
