Ana Martins, Conservation Scientist in the David Booth Conservation Center and Department and Ann Temkin, the Marie-Josée and Henry Kravis Chief Curator of Painting and Sculpture, demonstrate how art historians and scientists work together to form layered interpretations of well-known art works, and discuss how Martins’s inter-museum research with non-invasive imaging technology has revealed multiple layers of revisions beneath Piet Mondrian’s Broadway Boogie Woogie (1942–43). Get a peek at the painter’s previous attempts and learn about what effects this level of experimentation has on the current condition of the painting. Program length: 60 min.
