Summary
After a private collector noticed a mysterious face appearing in the middle of a classic Australian painting, art restorers realized it was going to take all the tools of modern science to figure out what to do about it. Follow art historians and restoration specialists in this video clip as they work out what to do with the ghostly plumed lady hidden by layers of paint before it's again fit for public exhibition. Did the artist, Charles Conder, paint over an old canvas? Did he change his mind half way through painting this impressionist landscape? Or, did an art restorer conceal the figure for nefarious reasons?
