Examining the New Arrival
When a painting arrives in its crate, the staff does not open it for 24 hours, giving the work time to "acclimatize." Our registrar, Barbara Lovejoy, waited at the museum last evening for the arrival of this painting Harvest Moon, Giverny and we could hardly wait to see it! Here she examines it, taking notes on the painting's condition.
