October-December 2006 (vol. 13 no. 4)

We can determine if some photographs have been doctored and then invalidate it as proof that two people were in the same place at the same time. But how true is realist art? In this second article of a three-part series, David G. Stork and Micah K. Johnson describe how they have adapted techniques of forensic analysis of digital images to analyze paintings. By examining light and shadows they uncover what techniques the artist used to render scenes more "realistic," shedding even more light on problems in art history.
