Visit the art conservation laboratory outfitted with treatment tools and analytical equipment, where you will encounter some of the treasures from the collection going through treatment and technical examination. Conservators will be on hand to discuss historic materials and how they were manipulated by the artists. We will also explore the museum’s collection through the lens of provenance and the fascinating histories behind the Nelson’s most treasured objects. This tour through the galleries will be led by the museum’s conservation specialist. It will include a discussion of how provenance research uncovers the collection's history, featuring objects once owned by particularly intriguing collectors as well as art looted by the Nazis and restituted after World War II.
