Davis Galleries | Reception to follow in Davis Lobby

When Davis curators recently delved into storage in preparation for the upcoming reinstallation project, they uncovered a rare example of seventeenth-century Spanish still life painting. Upon further research, this coveted painting was attributed to Alonso de Escobar and received extensive conservation and a new period frame.  Please join us to explore the story of this marvelous discovery with a team of experts:  Salvador Salort-Pons, Executive Director, Collection Strategies and Information, Detroit Institute of Arts; Theresa Carmichael, Independent Paintings Conservator; and Andrew Haines, Associate Conservator of Frames at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.  Organized by curators Eve Straussman-Pflanzer and Claire Whitner, with generous support from the E. Franklin Robbins Art Museum Endowment.
