Jose Luis Lazarte

Metropolitan Museum of Art, Fairchild Center for Paintings Conservation
Conservator
Brooklyn, NY
Born and raised in Perú, José first encountered art through frequent visits to Lima’s museums and historic buildings. He moved to the United States for high school to pursue an internationally based education in art. After a foundation year of fine arts at Lyme Academy in Connecticut, José travelled to Europe and was inspired by the conservation treatments he witnessed in Florence. José graduated from the University of Delaware with a B.A. in Art Conservation and a minor in Studio Art. He worked at various institutions such as Winterthur, The Barnes Foundation, and The Historical Society of Pennsylvania. In 2010 he interned at the Museum of Santa Teresa in Perú and treated an 18th-century Cuzco School painting. After returning to the US, he worked on the walls of the U.S. Capitol replicating traditionally gilded gesso ornaments assisting conservators William Lewin and Davida Kovner. Through this experience, he met ARTEX Paintings Conservator Barbara Ramsay, with whom he worked for the following two years. At ARTEX he performed treatments on paintings including works by Clyfford Still and the monumental Washington before Yorktown by Rembrandt Peale. José enjoys painting, attending music performances, traveling, and learning new languages.
