Video: Leonardo da Vinci: The Restoration of the Century

La grandiosa / espectacular operación, la cual se realiza sólo una vez cada siglo, tomó más de tres anos para terminarse.  El complejo y maravilloso proceso de restauración permitió la extraordinaria oportunidad de acercarse lo más posible a la pintura, a la forma en que se pintó originalmente y a comprender mejor la compleja relación que da Vinci tuvo con una de sus más sofisticadas/puras/finas/delicadas obras de arte.

The Virgin and Child with Saint Anne is one of the most beautiful paintings in the world. It is also one of the most mysterious. Disfigured and even jeopardised by “repairs” and by the successive layers of varnish applied to it over the centuries, it was also in very bad condition. To save the painting, it had to be restored.

The spectacular operation, the likes of which occurs only once a century, took over three years to complete. The complex and outstanding restoration process provided a unique opportunity to get as close as possible to the painting, to how it was originally painted, and to better understand the complex relationship Leonardo da Vinci had with one of his finest masterpieces.

La Sainte Anne est un des plus beaux tableaux du monde, un des plus mystérieux. Mais c’était aussi un tableau malade, défiguré, voire menacé, par les « réparations », et les couches de vernis successives déposées au fil des siècles. Pour le sauver une restauration s’imposait.

Une restauration spectaculaire qui s’est étalée sur plus de trois  ans, un chantier comme il en existe un par siècle. Cette opération complexe et exceptionnelle a été l’occasion unique d’être au plus près du tableau tel qu’il a été peint à l’origine, et de mieux comprendre  la relation complexe que Léonard de Vinci entretenait avec un de ses plus grands chefs-d’oeuvre.
