The Gallery’s Mindfulness and Art program continues online this fall with “Veritas in Lux: A Mindful Look at Illumination in Art,” a monthly series that explores light and luminosity in select works from the collection.

Each session focuses on a single work and uses the illuminating capacities of mindfulness and poetry to aid contemplation and dialogue.

SECURITY

An Attentive Eye

Security Officer Elijah Humes in the Margaret and Angus Wurtele Study Center in the Collection Studies Center at Yale West Campus
Throughout the spring and summer, the Gallery was fortunate to be able to continue work on three important exterior renovation projects. At the Collection Studies Center at Yale West Campus, the roof above the Conservation Lab was replaced. While this work was in progress, artworks undergoing conservation were temporarily housed in the Margaret and Angus Wurtele Study Center.

Thanks to our valued facilities and security staff, including Security Officer Elijah Humes, who keeps an attentive eye on the Study Center, the Gallery’s buildings have been continuously improved and safely monitored during the shutdown.

CONSERVATION

Rediscovering a Renaissance Treasure

Senior Conservator of Paintings Irma Passeri in the Institute for the Preservation of Cultural Heritage shared Conservation Lab in the Collection Studies Center at Yale West Campus
Following completion of the roof replacement project, Gallery staff, including Senior Conservator of Paintings Irma Passeri, have returned to the Conservation Lab. Irma continues her work on Venetian Nobleman and Two Women, a painting recently attributed to the Venetian painter Palma il Vecchio (1480–1528). The painting suffered extensive damage and was transferred from panel to canvas in an attempt to conserve it, probably in the 19th century. The fragile work will eventually be transferred back to a rigid surface.
