Rare Public Viewing of a Wisconsin Treasure

Renowned art conservator, Barry Bauman, will detail his restoration of John Singer Sargent's 1887 masterpiece, "General Lucius Fairchild." The painting of the Civil War hero and former Wisconsin governor is one of the most valuable items owned by the Wisconsin Historical Society. In a slide-illustrated presentation, Bauman will discuss his four-month-long process of cleaning, repairing and stabilizing the painting. The presentation will be followed by a rare public viewing of the John Singer Sargent portrait along with other important works including: Thomas Sully's 1854 portrait of George Washington; Samuel Marsden Brookes' 1858 portrait of Chief Oshkosh; and Ernest Hupeden's 1911 landscape, The Valley Where the Bluebirds Sing.
