ArtBreak: Uncovering Provenance

/ Virtual Programs


Join Erin Croxton, the BMA’s 2020 Goodrich Fellow, and Robert Schindler Ph.D., curator of European art, as they discuss the efforts taken to uncover the provenance of a bas-relief sculpture currently on exhibition, Profile of a Young Woman, created by Mino da Fiesole in the mid-1400s.

Provenance research not only verifies an artwork’s authenticity but also aids in telling the rich history of an object. We will discuss the difficulties that arise when an acquisition’s history is lost.
