Back to the Future – an artist‘s journey in search of authenticity: recorded lecture

 

What is authenticity? Can it be replicated?  Ying Yang has been a painter and painting conservator for over 25 years. He is now a Professor at Nanjing Normal University in China. In 2018, Charterhouse commissioned him to create a replica of Quentin Metsys the Younger's painting 'Sieve Portrait of Queen Elizabeth I', which is now in the Charterhouse’s permanent collection. In this lecture, based on his commission work experience, Ying suggests that beyond intricate skill and technique, copying an Old Master painting also requires deep understanding, imagination and innovation. He believes a well-constructed copy not only replicates images for us to see today, it also holds something for us to enjoy tomorrow.
