Is it true that a painting conservator is also a detective? According to conservator and art historian Barry Bauman, every painting has its secrets. During his 46 years of experience treating and analyzing damaged paintings, he has uncovered many of them—lost signatures, hidden dates, and entire paintings hidden beneath other works. Two of his discoveries were so phenomenal they landed on the front page of the New York Times.
Those who attend his upcoming presentation, “The Conservation of Paintings: Historical and Technical Discoveries,” on Thursday, October 14th, 7 pm, will share in the joy of some of his most remarkable discoveries. Hosted by the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette, this event will be a Zoom presentation.
Bauman’s discoveries lecture has been one of his most popular, especially for a museum or university audience, where people interested in art, art history, chemistry, physics, history, and museum studies all overlap with conservation concerns. Most attendees are not aware of the conservation field and the rewards it has to offer. The presentation will also review the requirements to enter the field of art conservation.
