How are historically correct reconstructions of paintings developed and defined? Join Brian Baade, painting conservator, researcher, and instructor on historic reconstructions of paintings, and Kristin deGhetaldi, Andrew W. Mellon painting conservation fellow, National Gallery of Art, as they describe the process used to create reconstructions, examine the historic recipes and techniques used by the artists, and explain how reconstructions are used to educate the public about the original works of art.
