127 Memorial Hall
Dr. Melanie Gifford, Research Conservator for Painting Technology in the Scientific Research Department at the National Gallery of Art (Washington, DC), will present her research on the technical history of Dutch and Flemish painters between 1650 and 1675. By examining the material evidence, Dr. Gifford explores the working relationships and exchange of methods between genre painters who did not all live in the same city. This research, carried out with Lisha Glinsman, will appear in the catalogue of the 2017 exhibition Vermeer and the Masters of Genre Painting: Inspiration and Rivalry in Paris, Dublin, and Washington.
