Thanks to ALL of you for jumping in on this one. I am having to grade a student's research paper based on her information related to art (thank goodness, I'm not grading it for grammar and form...LOL!) My thoughts were that both of these words meant basically the same thing. I searched but I couldn't find anything to "show that I was right"...and the student insists that the techniques are different.
What I'm thinking she did...was to have more than one reference when writing about the Mona Lisa. One source is calling it one thing and another one calling it another.
I knew you experts could help me out.
