Albert Albano

All of us in the Society are aware of the fact that 20th Century artists are incorporating unique materials in their work, using new paints, making their own paper, and generally pushing technology to its extremes. This makes their art interesting, exciting and challenging. It also raises a concern. How do we, as collectors, protect and preserve these works for the future Our guest speaker will provide us with some insight. Albert Albano, Associate Conservator of Paintings at the Philadelphia Museum of Art will be our guest speaker. Mr. Albano is presently responsible for the preservation of the 20th Century painting collection at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. His current position and prior experience make him eminently qualified to address this subject with us. He will discuss a range of fabrication techniques and materials used by various artists in the 20th Century, their resulting appearance and the subsequent conservation problems related to their preservation.
