Detailed description :Restoration

Léonard de Vinci, la restauration du siècle

Director(s): Stan Neumann

Scientific advisor(s): Vincent Pomarède et Vincent Delieuvin

This is one of the most beautiful paintings in the world, one of the most mysterious too. It is also a "sick" painting, defaced or threatened by "reparations" and successive layers of varnish deposited over the centuries. To save him, a restoration is needed: spectacular action spanning more than a year and provides a unique opportunity to be closer to the painting.
