Now that the painting has gone through a moisture treatment and the new canvas has been added to the back of the painting, it's time to examine the work by removing the facing on the surface. Artemisia Gentileschi's 'Self Portrait as Saint Catherine of Alexandria' is currently undergoing restoration treatment. This was made possible with Art Fund support.

Fly through the galaxy with Museum astrophysicist Jackie Faherty, who takes us on a dazzling tour of new research and data visualizations made possible by recently released data from the Gaia space telescope. In April 2018, the European Space Agency’s Gaia observatory released its second data catalog, which includes the distances to over 1.3 billion stars. Faherty breaks down why this information is so revolutionary, and explains how this information is helping scientists and non-scientists alike understand the universe like never before.
