The restoration of "The Triumph of Death" by Pieter Bruegel “the Elder"

María Antonia López Asiaín, Museo del Prado restorer, comments on the restoration process of the painting "The Triumph of Death" (1562 - 1563) by Pieter Bruegel “the Elder". 

This masterpiece by one of the most important painters in European art has recently been the subject of a major restoration sponsored by Fundación Iberdrola España, a Protector Sponsor of the Museo del Prado’s Restoration Programme.

The painting has now regained its original values, which had been affected by areas of repainting and coloured varnishes on the pictorial surface, in addition to a cradle that impeded the natural movement of the wood panel on which it is painted. Spanish and english subtitles available.
