bronze sculpture--how can you tell if it's a recast?
Is there any way to date a sculpture that was most likely a recast?
I have a little bronze goat by a 19th century artist who seems to be copied/recast/knocked off a lot (although not the goats!), but I don't know how to go about finding when this particular casting was done.
Anyone feel like analyzing marks on a goat? Or know what to look for? Thanks!
