Here’s something completely off topic:
In 2008 I had the incredible privilege of assisting the Chief Conservator of the Guggenheim, Paul Schwarzbaum, in Venice. The most difficult and rewarding project we worked on together was the restoration of Victor Brauner’s 1951 encaustic painting, Consciousness of Shock.
Paul’s recently launched his portfolio online, which is full of fascinating projects. Among them is a slide show documenting our work on the Brauner.
