Science & Art
Friday, September 21, 7 PM
Parrish Art Museum, Water Mill
Scientists from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Brookhaven National Laboratory, and Stony Brook University, joined by Parrish Art Museum Director Terrie Sultan, will present a program at the Museum on Friday, September 21 at 7 PM, that will reveal the scientific mysteries that lie within historic artworks.
For their research, the scientists used an ultrabright x-ray microscope — Brookhaven’s National Synchrotron Light Source II — to analyze a minute sample from The Crucifixion, a 15th Century oil painting by Jan Van Eyck. The research shed light on how and why some works of art deteriorate, and raises questions of how they might be better preserved.

Romany Kramoris Gallery, Sag Harbor
Romany Kramoris Gallery presents an exhibition of watercolors by the late Peter Lipman-Wulf (1905-1993). The show runs through September 27. Along with Lipman-Wulf, artworks from Christopher Engel, Suzzanne Fokine, and Barbara Groot will also be featured. Lipman-Wulf was primarily known as a sculptor and graphic artist. His paintings were rarely the focus of exhibits.
As a German of Jewish descent, Lipman-Wulf was forced to flee during WWII — first to France in 1933, then to Switzerland in 1942. Particularly in Switzerland, where, as a refugee, he was formally prohibited from working as a sculptor, he diverted his creative impulse to works on paper. Along with sketches and drawings, Lipman-Wulf completed numerous impressive landscapes and portraits in the South of France and Switzerland.
