1986. With art, all the public usually sees is the finished product; not the process of how it was made and how it got into a gallery, home or museum. E.J. Gold discusses the materials and techniques that go into production of art in different media, including techniques used in ancient times; the reproduction of important works and why it is necessary; art pricing, dealing, collecting, and all the business details needed by a professional artist or art dealer. He talks about what constitutes a masterpiece, and the different ways art is evaluated by the artist, the public, dealers, and the critics. He also mentions the idea of objective art as "traps" placed in specific selected locations. This is a practical talk.
