Static Pictures, Living Portraits: Repainting, Conservation, and the Ontology of Images

Research Seminars Series "Conserving Histories of Art"
Portraiture, Alberti said, promises a permanence across time and space. Early modern artists and audiences had other ideas, though: they frequently interfered with ‘finished’ portraits.
