Robert and Montague by Anastasia Wildig (oil, 2019)

Sourcing, documenting, interpreting and displaying difficult-to-access artworks and archival materials, Robert helps advance our understanding and appreciation of the personal, professional, socioeconomic and institutional forces that shape artistic heritage.
