This lecture will look at the Helen of Troy triptych from a curatorial and conservation standpoint. At the end of the program, conservators and curators will lead a guided look at the first of the three panels, whose treatment was recently completed. This is a special opportunity for visitors to get a very close and in-depth look at an intriguing and unusual piece of the collection.
