Authenticity in Art

This article talks about Authenticity in Art, which refers to the correct identification of the author of a work of art, to how closely a performance of a play or piece of music conforms to the author’s intention, or to how closely a work of art conforms to an artistic tradition. It also refers to how much the work possesses original or inherent authority, how much sincerity, genuineness of expression, and moral passion the artist or performer puts into the work. It  is concerned with identifying the person who made the work, or at least pinning down the place and time in which the work was made as closely as possible.
