After decades in storage, the monumental canvas “Christ and the Children” by Franck Kirchbach required extensive conservation. Through behind-the-scenes images, conservator Jean Dommeruth will discuss the restoration of this important work, on view in Sacred Visions, including the process of removing discolored varnish and past restorations. A look at the restored work in the galleries with conservators Yeonjoo Kim and Ralph Augsburger will illuminate the discoveries made along the way.
