Cincinnati Art Museum Behind the Scenes in Conservation: Don Francesco gets younger Here’s another detail from Agnolo Bronzino’s “Portrait of Eleonora of Toledo and Her Son, Don Francesco,” painted in Italy around 1550. The yellowed varnish and overpaint is being removed at the upper left. Note how the dark line of overpaint (partly removed below his left ear) served to narrow and shade his face. Without it Don Francesco’s face is rounder, plumper and younger-looking. The small losses shown in the cleaned portion of the face are in keeping with the age of the oil-paint-on-wood-panel painting. The dense area of small losses in the upper left background was caused by movement around a knot in the wood panel . 12 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.
