abstract

Since the mid-twentieth century, Italian art historians have developed a negative perception towards the restoration practices that involved the paintings in collections and galleries in the seventeenth century. This essay aims to reconsiders how such a historiographic misinterpretation originated, deconstructing the critical debates that evolved from the 1950s until recent years. In order to establish a clear-cut understanding of the 1600s pictorial restorations, the author reconsiders examples from the picture galleries in the Italian Peninsula, weighting them against the practices of restoration that evolved in a few Europe courts in the same years.
