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
