The Detroit Institute of Art have shared news on their Facebook page that their Artemisia Gentileschi of Judith and Her Maidservant with the Head of Holofernes has finally returned to their galleries. They explained that the painting was conserved last year. This was presumably before the work was exhibited in London last summer. They had posted these short videos last year showing the painting half cleaned and being revarnished.

I should also point out that the museum's YouTube channel has some rather interesting videos relating to their collection of old masters, in case it may be of interest to readers.
