Traces: Revealing Secrets in Art and History

William Rolland Gallery of Fine Art

Many works in collections have been altered by time or purposefully manipulated. This exhibit re-examines works of art to uncover what might be hiding in plain sight or just below the surface. Traces offers an inside look at the methods used to reveal the secrets of artworks, ranging from X-rays and infrared light to solvents that remove varnish.
