Tom Yost is a nationally known expert in the conservation of fine oil paintings. He has had the luxury of ongoing exposure to the works of the great American and European painters of the late 19th century, including those masters of the Hudson River School. Yost has said, ”Seeing and literally touching the paintings of the greatest realist painters, I have been able to closely study the various techniques of paint application. In this respect the very best painters of the 19th century have been my mentors.
