The Foundation offers a scientific master’s program for art professionals and graduates in artistic disciplines, according to the personal and scientific method of Dr. Greta Garcia Hernandez, who introduced the verification of the authenticity of the works of Amedeo Modigliani.
This method is developed from a database of pictorial works, reviewing the bibliography of the pictorial technique used by the artist, together with unpublished scientific information and the chemical-physical study performed on authentic works by the artist.
With all this knowledge, a model was created to record and cross-reference all the information obtained, from the comparison between the authentic works and the results obtained from the study assigned. Among the techniques used by the modern restoration, there are UV fluorescence, examination with infrared radiation, radiographs and chromographic separation techniques. The Master also foresees the authentication of all pictorial works concerning the early years of the ‘900.
