After decades in storage, the monumental canvas "Christ and the
Children" (1894) by Franck Kirchbach required extensive
conservation. Through behind-the-scenes images, conservator Jean
Dommeruth will discuss the restoration of this important work on
view in Sacred Visions: Nineteenth-Century Biblical Art from the
Dahesh Museum Collection, including the process of removing
discolored varnish and past restorations.  A look at the restored
work in the galleries with conservators Yeonjoo Kim and Ralph
Augsburger will illuminate the discoveries made along the way.

The Museum of Biblical Art (MOBIA) is located at 1865 Broadway, at
61st Street, in Manhattan. For more information call 212-408-1320 or
to RSVP (recommended but not necessary) 212-408-1251
