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.

A recent gift, this was painted by Theodore Robinson, an American Impressionist who worked with Monet in Giverny. It will be on view in January!
