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. 1 hour ago via Facebook

Memories in the Museums: Decorative Arts + Design: Jewelry + Modernism

April 02, 2014 - 10:00 am to 11:30 am

WHERE:
Attendees meet in Front Lobby

Designed especially for visitors with memory loss and their caregivers, Memories in the Museum is a new program developed in partnership between the Cincinnati Art Museum, the Contemporary Arts Center, and the Taft Museum of Art. On the first Wednesday of every month, participants join trained docents at one of the partner institutions to look at art together, discuss observations, and share memories. Multisensory and multi-modal activities complement each session and encourage remembering through all of the senses. All participants are invited for fellowship and refreshments prior to the session.
