In a recent post on the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco blog, WUDPAC Fellow José Luis Lazarte Fellow discusses his graduate internship at FAMSF working with the materials of Alan Sonfist, an artist whose pencil renderings of seismograms immortalized two California earthquakes.
It was not illegal in the 19th century to import elephant ivory; the material was exotic to early Americans, and highly valued. WUDPAC Fellow Jessica Chasen recently began treating six ivory-handled knives and forks from the Winterthur Museum’s collection, made by a firm called Horton & Co. in Sheffield, England, and once displayed in the museum’s Pine Kitchen.
During the decades that their architectural firm flourished in 19th-century Philadelphia, Edward Collins and James M. Autenrieth designed both public and private buildings. One of their architectural drawings recently became both a technical study and treatment project for WUDPAC Fellow Emilie Duncan, a library and archives conservation major.
In this blog post, WUDPAC Class of 2016 Fellow Lauren Gottschlich shares her internship experience amongst the wide-ranging collections at the Denver Art Museum, including how her early days at WUDPAC informed her work with tricky materials, such as soaps and waxes.
