Subject: Conserving a Master Piece - Art/Science connections

Many of you can show Pablo Picasso's painting Les
Demoiselles d'Avignon (1907)to your students. I had a
cubism poster featuring that work and never had a
problem with middle school kids.

Here is a web site from Museum of Modern Art (NY) that
goes into the conservation process of this work:

This month's (?) Smithsonian has an article, too.
