NCMA Curators Piqued By the Ambush of Time


Author(s):
Abstract:
Even the greatest works of art fall victim to the ravages of time. Conservators today use their expertise to repair paintings from the canvas up and just not paint over sections needing repair as their predecessors did. Restoration of the North Carolina Museum of Art's famous \"Views of Dresden,\" painted by Bernado Bellotto in 1747 and 1748, is discussed. Originally purchased in 1952 for $10,000 each, the paintings are now worth $10 million a piece.
