Extra Extra Large Art: Conservation Treatment of the Garibaldi
Panorama at NEDCC

NEDCC's paper conservators recently worked on a project that could
be classified as extra extra large.  The Garibaldi Panorama is among
the longest paintings in the world, measuring 260 feet long and 41/2
feet high.  From the Anne S.K. Brown Military Collection at the John
Hay Library of Brown University, the two-sided work of art on paper
depicts the life story of Italian patriot Giuseppe Garibaldi, who
played a major role in the unification of Italy.

The Panorama was treated at NEDCC over a period of ten months, and
the painting, on a 16-foot table, became a familiar sight in the
paper conservation lab.
