Lecture: Secrets of the Collection—Pentimenti in the Paintings of Claude Monet
Associate research conservator Kimberley Muir shares a few of the most exciting discoveries she has made about Monet’s paintings in the collection of the Art Institute. Muir delves beneath the surface of these paintings using state-of-the-art imaging techniques and analytical methods to reveal pentimenti, or hidden changes, and explore how Monet’s works evolved over time.
