Madeline Corona is responsible for the examination, treatment, and preventive care of objects and sculpture within the museums’ collections. In support of the 2019 Bauhaus exhibition, her collaborative research project focuses on the treatment and technical study of Hans Arp’s Constellations II (1950/58), a 13-panel wooden wall relief commissioned by Walter Gropius for the Harvard Graduate Center. Corona has completed research projects on Asian lacquer, peptide mass fingerprinting to identify collagen-based materials, and wood identification using heart-cut pyrolysis gas chromatography/mass spectrometry. Her past conservation work has focused on European decorative arts and archaeological objects. Corona currently serves on the board of the New England Conservation Association.
