The genesis of this absorbing lecture was an offhand comment from a museum curator who said, “You conservators have the most interesting stories.” The lecture takes the viewer through a modern conservation lab with illustrations of high tech equipment and its use as it supports the conservators’ skills. War stories, damaged art, and the stories behind them evolve into the breathtaking restoration results.

Also, learn about a badly damaged painting found behind a furnace in a Palm Beach mansion which, when restored, turned out to be a Monet. The program also delves into fakes and the use of modern technology to detect them.
