Fascinating discoveries can be made about the history of a painting during the treatment process; and some of these stories are among the most interesting one can encounter as a curator or art historian.

Artbreak: Stained Glass

March 15, 2016

On the third Tuesday of each month, the Curator of Education and/or Education Department staff lead visitors on a thirty to forty-five minutes exploration of one work of art in the galleries.
