News from Italy that Barocci's Martyrdom of St Sebastian has been conserved and redisplayed in the Cathedral of Urbino. The work had suffered terrible damage after thieves removed a squared section of the painting in 1982. The stolen fragment was recovered in 2017 and has finally be reunited with the rest of the painting. It sounds as if the restoration was a rather tricky one, as the squared returned section had been trimmed down leading to large losses of original work.
