The National Gallery cleans a Frans Hals

Video: National Gallery London

The National Gallery in London have published a rather satisfying video showing the conservation of a Portrait of a Lady by Frans Hals. The video features a full explanation presented by conservator Paul Ackroyd.

I'd also recommend this earlier published video giving a 'first look' at Thomas Lawrence's The Red Boy, a painting acquired by the gallery earlier in the year.
