  2. DIY Restoration

    This 19th-century fresco, Ecce Homo, by Spanish artist Elias Garcia Martinez, has been ruined after an elderly woman attempted a DIY restoration of the artwork. 

    In a time of austerity, rather than calling in a professional to complete the job, she attempted to restore the mural herself, rather unsuccessfully.

  3. Rodin Leaving Nelson-Atkins

    An impressive exhibition of 40 bronze sculptures by Auguste Rodin closes today at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City.

    "In addition to highlighting Rodin’s unrivaled capacity to capture the human spirit in all its nuances, the exhibition will also bring to light his pioneering studio practices. Working in plaster and wax, Rodin created models that he would fragment, multiply, recombine, enlarge and reduce. This unorthodox working method allowed the artist to produce a startling range of sculptural effects, examples of which are on display."
