Join Celia S. Chari for a closer look at the types of artists’ materials found in artworks throughout the exhibition Imagine Me and You: Dutch and Flemish Encounters with the Islamic World, 1450–1750 (May 18–August 18, 2024). Chari will share scientific and art historical insights on the pigments found in paintings on view, such as Portrait of Francis I, King of France by Haydar Reis. Visitors will learn about artists’ techniques, historical pigment recipes, the color fading of light-sensitive pigments and will come away with a deeper understanding of the artworks and their conservation.


Led by:

Celia S. Chari, Beal Family Postgraduate Fellow in Conservation Science, Straus Center for Conservation and Technical Studies
