Art History Lecture Series
Family Ties as Seen Through Materials and Techniques: N.C. Wyeth, Peter Hurd, and Andrew Wyeth

Tuesday, May 1
1 - 2pm 
$20 Member / $25 Non-member / $15 student with valid ID
Includes Museum admission. Advance registration is required.

By Joyce Hill Stoner, Ph.D., the Rosenberg Professor of Material Culture at the University of Delaware and Professor of Paintings Conservation for the Winterthur/UD Program in Art Conservation
 
Peter Hurd studied painting with N. C. Wyeth, but also taught the tempera technique to his teacher and to his brother-in-law Andrew, who felt strongly that Peter Hurd was one of two outsiders who contributed the most to the Wyeth family (the other was Betsy Wyeth). Dr. Joyce Hill Stoner will discuss her findings about family relationships and techniques gained through multiple conversations with Andrew and Betsy Wyeth.

Dr. Joyce Hill Stoner, who serves as conservator to the Wyeth family, earned her Master’s degree in conservation from the Conservation Center of the Institute of Fine Arts of NYU and her Ph.D. in art history from the University of Delaware. She has taught paintings conservation for the Winterthur/UD Program in Art Conservation for 41 years, serving as its director for 15 of those years. She was Andrew Wyeth’s conservator for the last 12 years of his life; he painted her portrait in 1999.
