Material aspects of 19th century American paintings
Metropolitan Museum of Art
February 13, 2013
1 pm

On Wednesday February 13, 2013 from 1-pm, a workshop on the material
aspects of 19th century American paintings will take place in the
American Wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It will be led by
independent conservators Lance Mayer and Gay Myers and Metropolitan
Museum of Art conservator Dorothy Mahon, with Elizabeth (Betsy)
Kornhauser, Senior Curator of American Paintings, Metropolitan
Museum of Art, and Carrie Rebora Barratt, Associate Director for
Collections and Administration Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The workshop is part of the "Learning to Look" workshop series
organized by the American Institute for Conservation in conjunction
with the annual meeting of the College Art Association.  First
organized in 2002, "Learning to Look" workshops bring together art
historians, conservators, and artists to discuss works of art.  Led

a curator and a conservator, each workshop focuses on the material
aspects of one type of object.  Past workshops have focused on
Classical art, Abstract Expressionist paintings, Rodin sculptures,
and early photographs.

The workshop will be limited to fifteen participants.
Pre-registration is required.
