Cincinnati Art Museum Eleonora at 464 Agnolo Bronzino’s “Portrait of Eleonora of Toledo and Her Son, Don Francesco,” painted in Italy around 1550, is undergoing treatment in the paintings conservation studio. Below is a detail taken during removal of yellowed varnish and overpaint. The tiny losses shown in the cleaned portion are in keeping with the age of the oil-paint-on-wood-panel painting. Many of Eleonora’s delicate features had been overpainted. Note the smudge of overpaint above the cleaned eyebrow near the nose, the dark stroke of opaque overpaint around the bottom of the iris in the left eye, and the solid stroke of overpaint in the crease of the left eyelid. The conservator is finding similar heavy-handed retouching throughout the picture. 2 hour ago via Facebook

Evenings for Educators: See It & Make It: Daoism in Art

October 16, 2013 - 04:00 pm to 07:00 pm

4:00 – 7:00 p.m. (registration and refreshments 4-5 p.m., program begins at 5 p.m.)

A spin off from the popular “Make It & Take Its” this year we are hosting two “See It & Make Its,” which include docent-led tours through a special exhibition and a hands-on art making component in response to the art viewed. This evening, curators present on the exhibition, Realm of the Immortals: Daoist Art in the Cincinnati Art Museum. Following, we explore ways to integrate the concepts of Chinese Daoism as both a philosophy and “folk religion” into classroom curricula.
