The overall purpose of this creative project was to explore the implications of art authentication as it relates to the process, valuation, and importance of artworks. The project was presented in the form of a podcast as this type of content is increasingly becoming popularized as a form of strategy in the field of marketing. As content is becoming a new way of experession in this digitial world, it is a new form of art. Because of this, podacasts, as a form of content, nicely reflects a similar manner of expression in modern day as art has for years. The examination, in question, began with the recently authenticated and auctioned Leonardo da Vinci artworks, The Isleworth Mona Lisa and The Salvador Mundi. These works brought on questions regarding the history of forgery, the process of authentication, appraisal, and overall ownership of art. These questions were researched and presented with regards to the works listed above as well as other high-profile examples in order to discuss their insinuations on the modern art market. Overall, properly authenticated work can make an impact on multiple facets of the market which may grant much attention to these situations. Interestingly, much of the processes that are related to art in modern day are quite subjective or unregulated. For example, authentication can be highly influenced by the opinion of experts. Valuation and appraisal are both similar in this sense, as well. Because of this, it is difficult to make any firm judgements concerning the works in question.

Developing a Framework for the in-situ Analysis of Artists’ Prints and Paintings via Hyperspectral Imaging

Hyperspectral imaging is a novel technology which allows for the collection of reflectance spectra of a sample in-situ and at a distance. A rapidly developing technology, hyperspectral imaging has been of particular interest in the field of art characterization, authentication, and conservation as it avoids the pitfalls of traditional characterization techniques and allows for the rapid and wide collection of data never before possible. It is hypothesized that by combining the power of hyperspectral imaging with machine learning, a new framework for the in-situ and automated characterization and authentication of artworks can be developed. This project, using the CMYK set of inks, began the preliminary development of such a framework. It was found that hyperspectral imaging and machine learning as a combination show significant potential as an avenue for art authentication, though further progress and research is needed to match the reliability of status quo techniques.
