On Tuesday, September 10, 2013, BGC hosted the first of four gatherings in a new speaking series entitled, "Conservation Conversations." In these public research dialogues, a conservator and a professor are paired together for an evening of presentation and conversation about issues at the core of the "Cultures of Conservation" initiative.


Last night's guests were David Bomford, Director of Conservation at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, who spoke on, “Connoisseurship: The Rembrandt Paradigm,” and Carlo Ginzburg, Professor of Italian Renaissance Studies at UCLA, who presented a paper entitled, “Small Differences: Ekphrasis and Connoisseurship.”
