Exclusive Viewing of the New Audubon’s Birds of America Gallery and other Watercolor Masterpieces by the Artist
This private viewing of the New-York Historical Society’s new dedicated Audubon Gallery with Roberta J.M. Olson, Curator of Drawings, will be followed by a discussion of the innovative techniques pioneered by Audubon. Attendees will be able to examine a separate selection these national treasures without glass in a study room. Paper conservator Alan Baliki will explain the complex conservation treatment of one watercolor and also demonstrate the cutting-edge display case for the double-elephant-folio edition of The Birds of America.
