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.
