Join conservator Kate Smith in making the invisible visible! As part of our new Art + Science Pathway, eight objects across our galleries are accompanied by images of their X-radiographs, which have given clues to conservation staff about how the works were made and how they have changed over time. Smith will look closely at three of these objects in this fascinating talk.


Led by:

Kate Smith, Conservator of Paintings and Head of Paintings Lab, Straus Center for Conservation and Technical Studies


This talk is part of the series Fresh Perspectives, an initiative that centers the role of the museumgoer. Like talks in the ReFrame series, these programs highlight diverse voices and broad interpretations of difficult histories and untold narratives. This approach encourages visitors to consider alternative ways of understanding an object, culture, or theme.


This talk will take place online via Zoom. The event is free and open to all, but registration is required. To register, please complete this online form.

Please read these instructions on how to join a meeting on Zoom. For general questions about Art Talks, email [email protected].


Art Talks Live are presented via Zoom and offer an up-close look at works from our collections with our team of curators, conservators, fellows, and graduate students.


The Harvard Art Museums are committed to accessibility for all visitors. For anyone requiring accessibility accommodations for our programs, please contact us at [email protected] at least 48 hours in advance.
