Rotorua Museum

Friends of Rotorua Museum are privileged to welcome back internationally-renowned Conservator, Barry Bauman who will present another insightful talk on the subject of art conservation. This is a wonderful opportunity for Rotorua residents to learn more about this fascinating topic.

The conservation and restoration of art can sometimes be a subject of drama. Each artwork that needs restoring carries within it, layer after layer of meaning - sometimes obscured, puzzling or distorted. It is the conservator's job to understand and reveal what the master painter intended.

In his discipline of treating and conserving paintings, Barry Bauman has been fortunate in making several historical and technical discoveries, such as uncovering hidden signatures and dates and even whole paintings underneath other works. In an illustrated lecture, Barry Bauman will share some of these remarkable experiences.

Barry Bauman has an MA degree in Art History from the University of Chicago. In 1972, he joined the conservation department at the Art Institute of Chicago and served the museum for eleven years, leaving as the Associate Conservator of Paintings. In 1983, Barry founded and directed the Chicago Conservation Centre for 20 years. He is an Elected Fellow of the American Institute for Conservation. Barry's treatment of a portrait of Mary Lincoln was featured on the front page of the New York Times.

Tickets on sale from Wednesday 1 February 2017.
Tickets available from Rotorua Lakes Council Hub only.
