A simple one I guess, however the question in this case is reversed...
Curator: The decision to restore the cloak of the central figure in Veroneseâ€™s painting from its present red to the green found underneath is fully justified. Reliable x-ray and chemical tests show that the red pigment was applied after the painting had been completed, and that the red paint was not mixed in Veroneseâ€™s workshop. Hence it appears likely that an artist other than Veronese tampered with Veroneseâ€™s painting after its completion.
Art critic: But in a copy of Veroneseâ€™s painting made shortly after Veronese died, the cloak is red. It is highly unlikely that a copyist would have made so major a change so soon after Veroneseâ€™s death.
The art criticâ€™s response to the curator would provide the strongest support for which one of the following conclusions?
(A) The copy of Veroneseâ€™s painting that was made soon after the painterâ€™s death is indistinguishable from the original.
(B) No painting should be restored before the painting is tested with technologically sophisticated equipment.
(C) The proposed restoration will fail to restore Veroneseâ€™s painting to the appearance it had at the end of the artistâ€™s lifetime.
(D) The value of an artistâ€™s work is not necessarily compromised when that work is tampered with by later artists.
(E) Veronese did not originally intend the central figureâ€™s cloak to be green.
