Barry Bauman
THE CONSERVATION OF PAINTINGS: HISTORICAL AND TECHNICAL DISCOVERIES

Fjelstul Art Lecture Series

Wednesday, November 18, 2020

Is it true that a painting conservator is also a detective? According to conservator and art historian Barry Bauman, every painting has its secrets. During his 46 years of experience treating and analyzing damaged paintings, he has uncovered many of them—lost signatures, hidden dates, and entire paintings hidden beneath other works. Two of his discoveries were so phenomenal they landed on the front pages of The New York Times. Barry Bauman is an Elected Fellow of the American Institute for Conservation and former Associate Conservator of Paintings for the Art Institute of Chicago.
