Meadows Museum Symposium: Looking Below the Surface: Working Methods of Zurbarán, Velázquez and Murillo

When: 
Friday, December 1, 2017 - 10:00am - 12:30pm

The use of X-radiography, infrared reflectography, and pigment and ground analysis in conservation allows an examination beneath the skin of the paint surface, often revealing the working processes of the artist. Claire Barry, director of conservation at the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, will present her recent analysis of Francisco de Zurbarán’s Jacob and His Twelve Sons and discuss his studio practice and the changes that have occurred to the paintings over time.
