Facebook Live: Rediscovering Reni

17 July, 9.15am (BST)

This is an online event

In 2016, the National Gallery began conservation treatment on a picture of The Toilet of Venus, long thought to be an inferior copy made by a member of Guido Reni’s studio.

Join us on Facebook on 17 July at 9.15am to explore the surprising discoveries that were made during this treatment with Conservator Kristina Mandy and Associate Curator Francesca Whitlum-Cooper.
The broadcast will be shared on the National Gallery’s Facebook page. The broadcast can be watched live on Facebook, and a replay version will be available on the channel afterwards.
