The concentrated, single-room exhibition focuses on insights derived from methods in conservation and museum technology science. Besides successful efforts to reveal an extremely brilliant portrait lying beneath an aged and soiled surface, indications of the work’s provenance and history have been gleaned from changes in the canvas, frame and mounting. The various stages of restoration are reflected in a wealth of visual documentation, allowing visitors to experience the excitement of following the trail of clues running through historical sources and comparable works.
