The Art of Sleuthing

Exhibition Website

Building on your observation skills and borrowing from the specialist’s knowledge, explore and investigate the “mysterious” world of art by viewing the backs of paintings, x-rays of art, forgeries, Nazi-looted art, and more! For investigators of all ages, examining art leads you on a winding path in pursuit of discovery, understanding, and appreciation.

On loan through June 5!

On loan from the North Carolina Museum of Art, Lucas Cranach’s Madonna and Child in a Landscape reveals a fascinating story of Nazi-looted art provenance that ends well!
