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
