Spring Lecture Series

The Metropolitan Museum of Art has in its collection seventeen paintings by Vincent Van Gogh. These celebrated works have been researched and published extensively, but technical examinations are providing new insights into the creative process of the artist. The talk will centre on a group of four resplendent still lifes of irises and roses, two of which are in The Met’s collection. Painted as series, just before the artist’s departure from asylum at Saint-Rémy, they were reunited for the first time since his death in a recent exhibition.

Charlotte Hale is a paintings conservator at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, where she is primarily responsible for works of the nineteenth century. She received her training in the Conservation of Paintings at the Courtauld, and joined the staff at The Met following a fellowship in the department of Paintings Conservation. Her most recent publications are technical studies of paintings by Van Gogh, Gauguin, Cézanne and Seurat, all relating to exhibitions.
