Historical Rewards:

A Dutch and a Flemish Discovery

In 2008, I had the opportunity to treat two seventeenth-century paintings. One was a Rubens studio painting owned by the Figge Art Museum in Davenport, Iowa, while the other was a Dutch panel by Egbert van der Poel owned by Calvin College, Grand Rapids, Michigan. In each instance, historical discoveries were made during the course of the conservation procedures. This Case Study outlines these remarkable revelations.
