Using 11 case studies, the Victoria and Albert Museum offer an insight into the way in which art historians establish the nature and origins of oil paintings. A two-year project which saw 200 of the museum's paintings re-attributed or re-identified. Through the free exhibition Research on Paintings we get a behind-the-scenes look at the documentary research and technical analysis which goes into such an undertaking.
