Q: I am interested in finding out about the gilded frames in the collection. I noticed them as I was walking around and couldn’t help thinking that the frame changes the appearance of the painting. I noticed that a lot of them appear “aged” compared to others I have seen on paintings from a similar time period. Is the original gilding showing its age, or have they been regilded?
Q: Looking at Picasso’s Group of Catalans in Montmartre: Pinchot, Mañach, Casagemas, Brossa, Picasso, and Gener (BF2049), I am not at all convinced that the signature in the lower right corner is his. Can you explain?
