Sebastiano Mainardi: The Science of Art Installation, Behind the Scenes



Sebastiano Mainardi's altarpiece was painted exactly five hundred years ago. Although it survives more or less intact, its appearance has changed drastically since 1507, the year in which the artist dated it. Conservators and New Media staff worked to create this behind-the-scenes documentary to provide an overview of the conservation process and science of art used to restore this Renaissance painting.
