Collections Research

'The Masks Grow to Us' by Clarence John Laughlin

The High Museum of Art regularly conducts research on objects in its permanent collection. Thanks to an initiative funded by the Mellon Foundation, curators and graduate fellows from the department of art history at Emory University are working together to investigate selected objects in the different curatorial areas of the High Museum’s permanent collection. This research delves into questions of authorship, subject matter, materials, and technique, and the resulting illustrated papers are now available below.
