A Closer Look: Photographs Conservation at the National Portrait Gallery
Presented by Christina Finlayson, photograph conservator at the National Portrait Gallery. Leslie Ureña, curator of photographs at the National Portrait Gallery, will moderate the Q & A.

Join Portrait Gallery Photograph Conservator Christina Finlayson for an inside look at the processes for conserving photographs in the Portrait Gallery’s collection. Finlayson’s talk will highlight her treatment of the March 1843 daguerreotype of John Quincy Adams, the earliest known photographic portrait of a U.S. president. She will also discuss treatments for a range of photographic media, from the daguerreotype to the gelatin silver print.
