Missing Masterpiece

Missing Masterpiece
Waiting For The Paint To Dry

By Busyhaus Artworks Artist Robert Hauser

A great work (magnum opus) is something society judges to be intellectually, artistically, and culturally extraordinary. A work designated a masterpiece by some may change over time, be forgotten, missing or never found. However, what may remain are the means (artist painting box) used in creating the masterpiece.

Graduate of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and Tufts University, Museum Conservator of Library & Art Collections, A National Endowment of the Arts Research Studies Recipient, Fellow of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic & Artistic Works, Member of Monadnock Arts.
