What else happens at Art Detective, besides the public Discussions that we are best known for? This curation features 10 artworks for which new information has been found, especially new attributions. The short texts only offer a glimpse of the evidence and of the effort that goes into such discoveries, which usually involves asking the collection to check the object and its file. This curation is to thank all those who give so much of their free time to improving this vast database of the nation's art, helping the stories emerging from it to be as accurate as possible.
