An expert eye for finding fakes

Listen to this story
How does a museum determine an original work of art from a fake? At the Remington Art Museum in Ogdensburg, part of curator Laura Foster's job is to make sure Frederic Remington's legacy and reputation are secure.

Laura Foster recently gave Todd Moe a tour of the vault in the lower level of the museum in Ogdensburg--not a stop on the usual guided tours of the Remington. It's where the museum stores original art when not on public display. It's also a place for research, a starting point where art sleuths will find resources for determining if a Remington work is the real deal.
