Summarise the points made in the lecture, being sure to explain how they case doubt on specific points made in the reading passage.
The reading and the lecture are both about a specific painting of Rembrandt known as "Portrait of an Elderly Woman in a White Bonnet." . The author of the reading feels that this painting was not the work of Rembrandt for three reasons. The lecturer challenges the claim made by the author. He is of the opinion that it was actually made by Rembrandt, which he discusses by bashing the three reasons mentioned by the author.
To begin with, the author argues that the white color cap of the woman was actually a servent standard thing but the fur collar of the dress was of luxurious standard. The argument mentions that Rembrandt will never make this type of mistake. This specific argument is challenged by the lecturer. He states that analysis with the help of x-rays proves that the collar was added to the picture 100 years later. Additionally, he mentions that it was done to increase the painting's value.
Secondly, the writer suggests that the light and shadow of the painting doesn't fit together as a fur collar should not reflect the light. Instead, it should absorb light. In the article, it is stated that Rembrandt, being very attentive to details of his subject's clothing, should not make such a mistake. The lecturer, however, refutes this by mentioning that those inconsistencies go away if the collar is eliminated. He elaborates on this by bringing up the point that as the collar was added later, the actual picture's light-colored dress should actually reflect the light as drawn in the picture.
Finally, the author posits that Rembrandt always drew with the wood panel but not with glues panel like the pictures. Moreover, he says that the signs of glued panel prove that the painting was made by someone else. In contrast, the lecturer's position is that the glued panel was used when the collar was added later. He notes the wood actually prove that painting was made by Rembrandt as it was the same wood as of the one Rembrandt self portraits.
