While treatment of The Retablo of Saint Peter has moved back behind the scenes in paintings conservation, rest assured that it is still under observation!  Here the ladies of Grant Wood’s Daughters of Revolution are keeping a close eye on four scenes from the life of Saint Peter.  The rest of the retablo is stowed similarly throughout the paintings conservation lab.  Our watchful ladies made a quick visit to the lab for a last minute condition check before going out on loan.
