A Restoration at the Met

I admit that this is off topic, but I was really impressed by this article in the New York Times on-line edition about the restoration and reattribution of a portrait of King Philip IV of Spain by Velazquez at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. (Philip IV was the father of Charles II).

The article includes an interactive media link showing the results of first the cleaning of the painting and then the restoration.
