Come to the CMA for a quick bite of art history. Every first Tuesday of each month, join curators, conservators, scholars, and other museum staff for 30-minute talks on objects currently on display in the museum galleries. 

In this month’s event, the CMA’s painting and frames technician David Piurek discusses the materials, processes, and techniques that he used to create a new water-gilded frame for an early Renaissance masterwork from the CMA’s collection, Giovanni Francesco Toscani’s Panel from a Cassone: The Race of the Palio in the Streets of Florence.
