Jeremy G. Fogg, painting conservator, and Jared Tuveson, frame conservator, will present a lecture detailing the process of finding a forgotten Fiske masterpiece and bringing it back to its original splendor for the exhibition, “Gertrude Fiske: American Master.” The Brethren, 1923, was award winning when first exhibited and praised by critics as a masterpiece. Now join us as we endeavor to learn more about the conservation process that has allowed the public to enjoy this masterpiece once again.

Jeremy G. Fogg, of South Berwick, Maine, is a painting Conservator and manager of Anthony Moore Painting Conservation in York, Maine. He is also a private art researcher, collector, and independent curator. Fogg curated “Illuminating Tarbell: Life and Art on the Piscataqua” and he possesses an incredible insight into the techniques and style of the Boston School artists, including Edmund Tarbell and Gertrude Fiske.
