In this episode, Jill Dunkerton, Restorer; Laura Llewellyn, Curator of Italian Paintings before 1500;  and Marta Melchiorre, Senior Scientist, discuss the restoration of Pesellino's 'Story of David' cassoni panels. They explore the Renaissance artist Pesellino's use of gold and silver leaf, and reveal the clues that suggest the panels may have been commissioned by the Medici family

The newly restored panels were unveiled in the free exhibition, 'Pesellino: A Renaissance Master Revealed.' 

The conservation of Pesellino's 'Story of David' panels (about 1445–55) was supported by the Rothschild Foundation
