Art conservation is topic of slide lecture, Nov. 21

The techniques and importance of art conservation is the topic of a slide lecture at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 21, in McCosh 50. The event is sponsored by the University Art Museum .

Bruce Hardin Suffield, assistant conservator of paintings at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, will speak on "Andrea di Bartolo's 'Madonna and Child': Investigations of the Materials, Techniques and Original Effects."

Di Bartolo's painting, which is in the museum's permanent collection, was the central panel of a dispersed altarpiece. It is included in the exhibition "Beyond the Invisible: A Conservator's Perspective," on view at the art museum through Jan. 5, 2003.

In 1992, Suffield, then a conservation intern at the museum, undertook a thorough examination and treatment of the painting.
