Description

Fingerprints in the Paint and The Expert Eye

What questions does the specialist ask when poised before the canvas and how do they deal with surprises? This outstanding panel of experts will relate their own stories of the unexpected and the often thrilling, path of discovery when examining an object, and debate how an expert’s eye can extract information about authorship, an artist’s working method, and the original intent of a picture. What do we learn from close looking? And what is the role of connoisseurship in modern day museum and market practice?

Panelists: Claire Barry, Director of Conservation, Kimbell Art Museum; Jack Kilgore, Jack Kilgore & Co.; Mary Morton, National Gallery of Art;

Moderator: Esther Bell, Curator of Painting and Sculpture, Clark Art Institute

This program was organized in association with the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute.
