Two years ago you donated to…
Two years ago you donated to our Department of Photography at George Eastman House PhotoFinish 5k fund-raising campaign. At that time, we were raising funds to conserve a painting by the Florentine artist Giacomo Martinetti held in the Eastman House Photography collection.

Sometimes we wait for the best things in life, so I'm writing to you today to let you know that I picked up the painting from the Buffalo State Art Conservation department earlier this week. Over the past two years, students and faculty mended tears, cleaned the painting and removed the old varnish, which had yellowed and was obscuring the vibrant colors. Today, it is beautifully restored and back in the vaults of the museum.

Next up we will use the remaining funds from the 2012 campaign to frame the work, protecting it from future damage. And, hopefully, in the future it will be on display at the museum as well.

I'm grateful to everyone who gave to the campaign in 2012. Your donations are doing great things for the Eastman House collection!

Best wishes,
Jamie M. Allen
Associate Curator, Department of Photography
George Eastman House

PS - If you can't remember the painting, my colleague Joe Struble wrote a blog about it prior to conservation. That can be found at:

Thank you again for donating…
Thank you again for donating to the Department of Photographs as we worked to provide some extra care for a couple of our collection items. We were able to raise 54% of our goal, so the work is not over yet, but we have the funds in place to conserve the painting and are well on our way to taking the double daguerreotype to the conservator too! Your generosity and support are much appreciated!
Best wishes,
Jamie

Did you include that in as an off- line donation on your page? If you didn't, would you like me to add it in as an off-line donation to Run 4 George? My best, Mr. E
