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

Printmaking Today

June 02, 2012 to August 19, 2012

Modern visual culture is inextricably linked to creative artists who explore new directions and push boundaries. At the same time technological changes have transformed the visual image and the transfer of visual information. Printmakers have both brought innovations to established print media and at the same time embraced new digital processes. Among the artists pushing boundaries are Jay Bolotin, Willie Cole, and Julie Mehretu. Those exploring new horizons with digital technology include Ann Hamilton, Jane Hammond, and Jennifer Purdum. This exhibition explores through recent acquisitions to the permanent collection printmaking in the first decade of the twenty-first century.
