Posted by Adam Busiakiewicz:

A reader has kindly alerted me to news that an altarpiece by Callisto Piazza da Lodi (1523-1561) has been restored. The mid-sixteenth-century painting depicting the Assumption and Coronation of the Virgin was reportedly purchased from Sotheby's and will be heading back to Lugano, Switzerland, where the painting was kept until it was sold in c.1700. The conservation of the picture was undertaken in London.
