Talk: Art, Conservation, and Science: A Closer Look at Chiaroscuro Woodcuts

2 pm | Sat, June 30, 2018
Brown Auditorium

In preparation for the exhibition The Chiaroscuro Woodcut in Renaissance Italy, LACMA’s conservation center undertook an extensive technical study, which shed new light on the materials and production methods of these pioneering color prints. Prints and Drawings curator Naoko Takahatake, associate paper conservator Erin Jue, and former Andrew W. Mellon Senior Scientist and Head of Conservation Research Charlotte Eng, will discuss the conservation treatment of Antonio da Trento’s Martyrdom of Two Saints and present some findings from their interdisciplinary research.
