Though this Adam and Eve relief has been on continuous display in the Walters palazzo building since 1909, very little was known about the circumstances of its manufacture and its histor. Questions as to its authenticity have lingered since at least 1911, when Princeton Professor Allan Marquand published the first in a series of articles and entries suggesting that though some portions may be attributed to Giovanni della Robbia others are “by another hand,” and the overall assembly is the “product of more than one mind.”

On May 28, learn how conservators and curators set out to answer these questions and more in "Three Voices: Adam & Eve by Workshop of Giovanni della Robbia", a free gallery talk at the Walters. Learn more: http://buff.ly/1cTGqRc

TOMORROW: Observe conservator, Stephanie Hulman in the first floor special exhibition gallery, continuing the work she has been doing on objects with gilded lacquer surfaces from the Doris Duke Collection of Southeast Asian Art (WAM 54.2990). Stephanie has been treating these pieces, which were in storage for a long time, and addressing some of their unique issues. Visitors can see the dramatic difference between items that Stephanie has already treated and the piece that she is currently treating, and can learn about the processes that objects conservators use to analyze, treat, and protect these important parts of the museum’s collection.

You are invited to discover some of the most talented artists from around the globe and across the ages. The Walters Art Museum is one of only a few museums in the world to present a panorama of art from the third millennium B.C. to the early 20th century. The thousands of treasures range from mummies to arms and armor, from old master paintings to Art Nouveau jewelry. The Walters' Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Ethiopian and Western Medieval art collections are among the finest in the nation, as are the museum's holdings of Renaissance and Asian art and a spectacular reserve of illuminated manuscripts and rare books. Every major trend in French painting during the 19th century is represented in the collection, which was amassed substantially by two men, William and Henry Walters, and eventually bequeathed to the City of Baltimore.

I don't think I can speak highly enough about this gem of Baltimore. This place is the intellectual saving grace of this seriously lacking state. I have been three times and will very happily return there again and again and again. I forgot to join the last time I was there. I highly recommend it. the parking is 12$ but its right next door and they do take credit cards. members get their parking validated, I believe. the ancient world comes alive here. From Egypt to Minoan culture and so much more. The only thing I would most definitely be aware of, is that there is no food option. there is a "café" but it serves coffee and a couple of cookies and that is it. there is a 7/11 just down the street so if you are really thirsty or want a snack, you can step out for a min and then bring it back to eat in their sitting area on the 1st floor. there is a coat check are and all of the staff seem to really love what they do. feel free to bring the younger generation and ask questions. I have always been approached by staff who appear to be literally unable to keep their knowledge to themselves.

Fantastic museum with diverse pieces. The medieval collection spans cultures and includes both art and artifacts. Numerous sculptures and artifacts may be found throughout the museum. Of particular notes is the manuscripts exhibit which, while small, is the best I have seen. General admission is free, and parking (available across the street) is only $6 with validation. Donations are encouraged.

Great place to spend a few hours. It is a good collection of artifacts from around the world with emphasis on Europe and Asia. The architecture of the existing mansion buildings also adds another level to the museum experience. Admission is also free, which is always a good thing.

I had never been there before, but I highly recommend a visit if you are ever are in the Baltimore area, or even as a special trip. Housing a really impressive collection in a beautiful four story, multi-wing historic building, the Walters seems like an over-looked treasure. I frequent and love the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NY, which dwarfs the Walters in all regards, however, I was at the Walters on a Saturday afternoon in June, and there were maybe two dozen people casually strolling the quite galleries. A stark contrast to the crowds at the Met. If you've ever tried sketching at the Met, you know that the mass of humanity poses challenges. I could of sat in front of countless master works for hours undisturbed at the Walters. Unlike the Met's hefty recommended $25 admission (key word is recommended, folks!), the Walters doesn't even pretend to charge. There is a ticket booth for some reason, but the attendant just waves and says: "Go on in." Note that Baltimores Inner Harbor, National Aquarium are within a short hike of the museum. Note also, that Baltimore's scuzier side is fairly seemless from it's cultured side, so pay attention to where you are at and who's around you when walking the streets.
