Focusing on a small selection of drawings, conservator Penley Knipe will explore how Dutch artists of the 17th century creatively combined drawing media to dazzling effect in their pursuit of rendering local landscapes. Visitors will learn about well-known materials like charcoal and watercolor and lesser-known materials like gum arabic and “oatmeal” paper, as well as how the work of paper conservators advances research and scholarship.


This talk is offered in conjunction with the exhibition Crossroads: Drawing the Dutch Landscape, on view through August 14, 2022.


Penley Knipe, Philip and Lynn Straus Senior Conservator of Works on Paper and Head of Paper Lab, Straus Center for Conservation and Technical Studies
