Society Afternoon Talk

The Back of the Painting

16 April 2021 | 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Join Jenny Sherman and Linda Waters, painting conservators and co-authors of this superb book on what can’t be seen by the public - the backs of paintings. Our Conservator, Jenny Sherman, has been one of three authors writing on, of all things, the BACK of the painting! This book is a real treasure – there are some favourite artworks from Auckland Art Gallery, Te Papa Tongarewa and Dunedin Public Art Gallery that have been selected for the book. Jenny and co-author Linda Waters from Te Papa Tongarewa will talk about the process of writing (the third conservator involved in this publication is Sarah Hillary from Auckland Art Gallery). There will be a book signing to follow the talk. Afternoon tea provided. Everyone is welcome.
