Members Only TALK: John Twilley on Art Conservation Science and the Painting Study by Candlelight

Nevada Museum of Art
April 12, 2013

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Twilley will discuss his ongoing research on the painting Study by Candlelight, including microscopic observations, subsurface infrared imaging and X-ray radiography, and analyses of the pigments and paint media. Although scientific testing is not capable of proving the authorship of a painting, it is fundamental to the resolution of conflicting opinions about the use of materials by the painter. Twilley is highly-regarded in the field of art conservation with over thirty years of experience.
