VIVID VIEW Exhibition

Exhibition opens with a free reception at Wilton House Museum
on Friday, March 31, at 6:00PM.

Paint cross-sections captured by paint conservator Dr. Susan Buck reveal both the beauty and the science of historic paint analysis. These paint cross-sections, pigments, and fibers are not only archaeological tools, but also colorful and captivating abstract images. This dual nature is strikingly illustrated with examples from paint analysis investigations conducted at Wilton and other historic Virginia sites. Explore how this process shapes interpretation, denotes social standing, and dictates room use.

VIVID VIEW is made possible in part through the generous support of James D. and Pamela J. Penny
and 2012-2013 Paint Detectives Campaign.
