The Butler Institute of American Art received a Luce Foundation grant of $15,000 which the museum applied toward the larger cost of much needed paintings conservation of five of the most significant American paintings from the institute’s original collection. Additional funding supporting current art conservation work and work of the past two years at McKay Lodge Conservation Laboratory has come in part from the institute’s ongoing Adopt-a Painting-Program.
Art Conservation funding from the Luce Foundation supported the paintings conservation work on:
Charles Howard Davis, Call of the Westwind.
Henry Ward Ranger, Long Pond, 1907.
Chauncey Foster Ryder, Path Down the Mountain, 1912.
Robert Hogg Nisbet, Emerald Robe, 1914.
John Francis Murphy, An Old Farm, 1918.
