About The Event

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. 

Join CMA conservator Robin Hanson and hear the life story of a recently conserved set of 17th-century French tapestries on view in the CMA exhibition Cycles of Life: The Four Seasons Tapestries. Hanson shares details of the tapestries’ initial design and production, subsequent reproduction and alteration, and recent conservation treatment by tapestry conservation specialists in Belgium.
