Picture This: Antiques Roadshow at American Art
August 19, 2010


Antiques Roadshow

Antiques Roadshow host Mark L. Walberg discusses the shoot with segment producer Sarah Elliott while Nancy Druckman from Sotheby’s looks at miniatures in the background.

Folks from the popular PBS show, Antiques Roadshow, came to film in the Museum yesterday before Saturday’s main event at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. While they were here, they went behind the scenes at the Museum and looked at some of our miniatures in the Lunder Conservation Center. Nancy Druckman from Sotheby's discussed four miniatures on view in the Luce Foundation Center for American Art: Matthias & Thomas Bordley by Charles Willson Peale, Gilbert Stuart by Sarah Goodridge, Captain Noah Rich by Unidentified, and Portrait of a Lady by James Sanford Ellsworth. I wonder what treasures they are going to discover on Saturday?

Who knows, but one can hope that their filming can bring some exposure to the museum.

As you can see, the filmakers see how interesting the museum is. I see that it was big that they were able to get permission to film there.
