How Science Informs Art

Our Conservator of Works on Paper Jodie Utter is a featured guest blogger for The Planetary Society! Check out her post to discover how scientific analysis of artworks using different parts of the electromagnetic spectrum informs understanding of how artists worked and how the appearance of their paintings has changed with time. Jodie's research and knowledge about Charles Russell's watercolor techniques and materials are also featured in a section of our current special exhibition Romance Maker: The Watercolors of Charles M. Russell. Congratulations, Jodie!
