The Dallas Museum of Art announces a big boost in its efforts to conserve the American paintings in its collection with the establishment of the Graham Williford Foundation for American Art Endowment for Art Conservation. The endowment is seeded with a $100,000 gift from the Jean and Graham Devoe Williford Charitable Trust, with the money earmarked for the conservation of the museum’s American paintings and decorative arts prior to 1920.

The museum has several pieces on long-term loan from the late Graham Williford’s collection, and in 2006, it staged “There and Back Again: Selections from the Graham D. Williford Collection of American Art.”

  • One thing that the DMA can do to conserve art work is to keep oil paintings out of the sun!
    Some time ago in one of the American art galleries, I saw sunlight falling on an oil painting full strength. I brought it to the attention of the staff and wondered if anything was ever done to correct it.
