Filming of A New Look: Samuel F.B. Morse and the Gallery of the Louvre
In 2010, the Terra Foundation for American Art’s monumental painting by Samuel F.B. Morse, Gallery of the Louvre, underwent an extensive conservation treatment in the Connecticut studio of Lance Mayer and Gay Myers. Specialists in 19th-century American painting, their conservation of the painting is documented throughout the film, weaved between interviews with conservators, curators, and other specialists who discuss Morse’s career, the painting’s creation, and the Old Master works that were its sources.
