UAMA Partners with Getty to Conserve Long-Lost Willem de Kooning Painting

More than 30 years after it was cut from its frame, ripped from its backing, rolled up and stolen from the University of Arizona Museum of Art, Willem de Kooning’s 1954-55 painting Woman-Ochre will be conserved and studied by conservators at the J. Paul Getty Museum and scientists at the Getty Conservation Institute.
