### Pt-20 sec-4 #10 art critic

I get why (c) is correct, but it seems that you could also be assuming that if the painting of the copy is red, and it's unlikely that the copyist made a major change, then you could assume that Veronese originally painted the painting red, which in turn led to the copy of the original painting looking red as well. Which would leave open the possibility of (a) or (e) being correct?? Can somebody help with this one

Hey Itowns1,

We know that the painting was not originally painted red from the Curator's statements. The Curator wants to restore the painting to the green found underneath, which means that the top layer of red was not the original color. The inference you want to make here is that the painting was originally colored green but then changed to red shortly thereafter.

Hope this helps!
