Jane Gillies, objects and sculpture conservator at the MFAH, discusses La Fée aux fleurs, a turn-of-the-20th-century work by Mathurin Moreau. This cast-iron sculpture of a winged nymph and cherub was returned to Rienzi’s gardens in the summer of 2012 after extensive research and conservation, during which conservators discovered the previously hidden foundry mark on the sculpture.
On the third Thursday of each month, Rienzi highlights a great work of art in the Rienzi Collection. Gallery Talks are given by museum curators, conservators, educators, and librarians. Admission is free. Reservations are encouraged.
