Preserving the Washington Color School Paintings at the Corcoran

Thursday, January 20 at 6:30 p.m.

Gallery Talk

Free with Gallery admission; pre-registration encouraged.

Join Jay Krueger, senior conservator of modern paintings at the National Gallery of Art, as he discusses some of the unique techniques that artists of the Washington Color School employed in their abstract canvases. These innovative painting methods advanced the artists’ exploration into color, but pose problems for museum conservators seeking to protect these important artworks.
