Inpainting Update
by Joan - Conservator

Into the seventh week of the conservation exhibition, the inpainting phase continues. Most areas of the painting are coming to completion and soon the painting will receive another layer of varnish. After the varnish is applied, a final sweep will be made to refine the inpainting work.
