From the collection: Studio of Lucas Cranach the Elder, Virgin and Child, 1513-1514, Oil on lime, Gift of Samuel H. Kress Foundation

Research on provenance – the history of ownership of an art object – is an important part of maintaining a museum collection. Understanding provenance allows insight into the history of specific works, helps verify a piece as authentic, or ensures that it has been acquired by honest means. The UAMA is dedicated to continued provenance research on its artworks in order to establish their origins and ensure the legitimacy of the Museum’s title to the works.

Join us on Monday, March 22 at 3:00 p.m. as graduate students from Dr. Irene Romano’s Provenance Research seminar discuss the lives of three paintings from the Samuel H. Kress Collection. Emily Hager will speak about Virgin and Child by the Studio of Lucas Cranach the Elder; Sedona Heidinger will highlight Elisabeth Louise Vigée-LeBrun’s The Countess von Schönfeld with Her Daughter; and Nicholas McCullough will present on Horace Vernet’s Portrait of the Marchesa Cunegonda Misciattelli with Her Infant Son and His Nurse.

Through these students’ research we can gain a more complete understanding of the history and significance of these incredible works of art.
