Eric Gordon, Head of paintings Conservation, The Walters Art Museum; and Gwen Manthey, National Endowment for the Humanities Fellow, The Chrysler Museum of Art

Richard Caton Woodville created what became some of the most iconic images of antebellum America while working from abroad. His early education in Baltimore coupled with his studies at the Düsseldorf Academy instilled in him a fairly traditional, conservative painting methodology. By identifying his painting materials and the process involved in creating his compositions, we can appreciate how he transformed his vision of American life onto canvas.
