CANALETTO MASTERWORK RESTORED

Apr 26, 2016 - Jan 1, 2017

Following nearly one year of conservation treatment, an Italian masterwork discovered in the Denver Art Museum storage is on view. Since spring 2012, we have been writing updates about behind-the-scenes discoveries and decisions related to the restoration.


In November 2011, the DAM was awarded a grant from The European Fine Art Fair (TEFAF) Foundation to restore a painting in its collection that had recently been attributed to 18th century Venetian painter Giovanni Antonio Canal, called il Canaletto.
