Did Mondrian know Kandinsky? The Inventing Abstraction Network Diagram forms the center piece of a new exhibition at MoMA that celebrates the centennial anniversary of the concept of abstraction.
In this project, Self-portrait 21, the 3D copy of the skull represents the true image (vera icon). This image has formed the basis for a facial reconstruction by a forensic anthropologist, who received the skull anonymously accompanied only by the information that it belonged to a man in his mid-40s born in Western Europe.
Who painted that? Who drew that? Who sculpted that?
The question of attribution has long been problematic for art historians and conservators. A change in the attribution of a work from a highly ranked artist to a lessor one, or to the “workshop of” or “circle of” the master, or the reverse elevation of a work from a lesser status to the hand of the master, can change the fortunes of museums, galleries and collectors literally overnight.
