Villa La Pietra

(Open to NYU Students only)

During Summer 2023 the Institute of Fine Arts organized at Villa La Pietra a research seminar for graduate students in art history and conservation

Seven 14th-Century paintings from the Acton Collection were taken off the walls to be analyzed and studied. 

Join us in a workshop to learn how to look at panel paintings: on the front and back, what is visible with the naked-eye and what non-invasive technical diagnostics can reveal to a trained observer. 

Discussion with the collection manager and a conservator and a light lunch are part of this Meeting.
