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

FOTOFOCUS Lecture with Michael Kenna

March 05, 2014 - 07:00 pm to 08:00 pm

WHERE:
Fath Auditorium

Photographer Michael Kenna will discuss his process and work during the spring FOTOFOCUS lecture. Kenna’s landscapes are unpopulated, simple, serene, and subtle. Often using long exposures at night or dawn to soften the hard edge of reality, his minimalist images demand quiet attention from the viewer. Join us after the lecture for a public reception in the Great Hall.

FREE. Reservations not required. Parking at the Art Museum is $4, FREE for Art Museum Members.
