Some paintings undergo remarkable transformations during the restoration process. My recent treatment of a painting by Anton Raphael Mengs was kindly acknowledged in a post on LACMA’s blog. The painting can now be enjoyed in LACMA’s European galleries.
This film offers insight into a conservator’s working process. See how I analysed and restored a panel painting by the German-Dutch flower and still-life painter Abraham Mignon (1640-1679) at the Conservation Department of the National Gallery of Denmark, and how hidden stories are unveiled.
