Art Study Center Seminar at Home: Obsession and Labor


Friday, October 9, 2020, 11:00am to 12:00pm


Harvard Art Museums—Online

British artist Albert Moore’s painting process is believed to be among the most elaborate of the Victorian era. Join conservation fellow Ruby Awburn and curatorial fellow Sophie Lynford as they discuss the results of their recent research and examination of Moore’s painting Study for “Blossoms.” The conservation treatment revealed layers beneath the surface of his work, which allowed Awburn and Lynford to reconstruct Moore’s elaborate, multistage painting process.

Led by:
Ruby Awburn, Paintings Conservation Fellow, Straus Center for Conservation and Technical Studies
Sophie Lynford, Rousseau Curatorial Fellow in European Art, Division of European and American Art
