NEDCCNEDCC’s paper conservators recently worked on a project that could be classified as EXTRA EXTRA large. The Garibaldi Panorama is among the longest paintings in the world, measuring 260 feet long and 4½ feet high. From the Anne S.K. Brown Military Collection at the John Hay Library of Brown University, the two-sided work of art on paper depicts the life story of Italian patriot Giuseppe Garibaldi, who played a major role in the unification of Italy.

The Panorama was treated at NEDCC over a period of ten months, and the painting, on a 16-foot table, became a familiar sight in the paper conservation lab.
