Organized in conjunction with the recent gift of a 16th-century Venetian painting, Holy Family with St. Catherine, St. Sebastian, and a Patron, this symposium brings together a conservator, a curator, and a recent Wellesley graduate to offer new insights on the painting.

As a complement to the exhibition Hidden Histories: Revealing the Life of a Painting, presentations will be given by Lydia Vagts, conservator at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, who performed technical analysis on the painting; Frederick Ilchman, chair, art of Europe, and Mrs. Russell W. Baker Curator of Paintings at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, an expert on 16th-century Venetian painting; and Katherine Davies ’19, the Eleanor P. DeLorme Museum Intern for the summer of 2019 at the Davis and co-curator of the exhibition.
