How does one determine an authentic Chinese painting from a copy or forgery, and what determines the difference between the latter two? These questions have confounded collectors and connoisseurs for centuries. In this talk, Stephen Little will examine some of the key issues and techniques involved in the connoisseurship of Chinese painting. Stephen Little is the Florence and Harry Sloan Curator of Chinese Art and Department Head, Chinese and Korean Art Departments at Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).
