Member Tour: Resurrecting Helen of Troy--Conserving Paintings from a Palazzo

For decades a magnificent Italian Renaissance series of panel paintings depicting episodes from the story of Helen of Troy remained in storage due to its poor condition. Eric Gordon, head of paintings conservation, describes the research, analysis, and treatment of the paintings undertaken over the last four years, culminating in new revelations and dramatic results.
