A Trio of Treatments: Conserving Manet's "Still Life with Fish and Shrimp"

Between 2018–2019, the Norton Simon Museum collaborated with the Department of Paintings Conservation at the J. Paul Getty Museum to clean and conserve the Simon’s three paintings by Édouard Manet.

In this video, Chief Curator Emily Talbot interviews Laura Rivers, Associate Conservator at the J. Paul Getty Museum, on her treatment of Still Life with Fish and Shrimp, which returned the painting to a condition that more closely resembles its appearance when it left Manet's studio.
