Desi Peters, Mellon Fellow in Painting Conservation, discusses her treatment and research of Georges Braque’s 1943 still life, “Pitcher, Candlestick, and Black Fish.” Unexpected materials on the painting led to complicated decisions during treatment and expanded the need for research into other works in the collection. Join us for a look at the painting during treatment presented alongside treatment images on iPads, and a discussion of the work’s history and treatment.
This talk will take place in the Cy Twombly Gallery.
Held every Friday for a small group, Member Noontime Talks make exhibitions more intimate and reveal the collection as never before. To sign up, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are not currently a Menil Member, you can learn more and join here.
