Learn what it takes to preserve a painting (and frame) for posterity.

Conservator Mark Lewis and NEH Conservation Fellow Julie Ribits welcome your questions as they work in our skylit Gallery 205.

The painting under their care is Anthony Van Dyck’s masterwork St. Sebastian, an oil-on-canvas work that dates to around 1623. With the painting beautifully restored, the pair turned to the deeply textured and patterned frame.
