A conservation survey of 489 oil paintings from the Westmoreland Museum of American Art. The collection of fine and decorative American art contains nationally recognized works, such as Rembrandt Peale's "Porthole Portrait of George Washington" and Mary Cassatt's "Mother and Two Children," as well as a unique assembly of art from southwestern Pennsylvania. Exhibits, publications, and educational programming highlight significant developments in American art from the colonial to the contemporary periods, as well as reflect state and regional history within the national context.

Working with a conservator, Museum staff will reevaluate the paintings identified in the Museum's most recent survey (1994) and prioritize needs outlined in the Museum's conservation plan. This reevaluation and prioritization will assist the Museum in seeking additional funds for conservation.
