Medieval paintings can seem remote, awkward, and sometimes even primitive. But there is perhaps no other time when painting was done with more care and devotion or with more expensive materials. NCMA conservator Perry Hurt says the work of manuscript illuminators, altarpiece painters, and sculptors survives today as testament to their skill and craftsmanship and their ability to make great paint.
These seminars begin with a lecture by curators or other experts, and the discussion continues over a lunch catered by Iris restaurant. Register online or call the Museum Box Office, (919) 715-5923.
