The Ringling was awarded a grant from the Getty Foundation’s Conserving Canvas initiative to restore the monumental painting Emperor Justinian by Jean-Joseph Benjamin-Constant. The painting was prominently displayed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art for many years before being acquired by John Ringling in 1929. After completion of its conservation treatment, the painting will be installed in a position of honor in one of The Ringling’s largest galleries. 
    
In this Conversation, Barbara Ramsay, the museum’s Chief Conservator, and Sarah Cartwright, the Ulla R. Searing Curator of Collections, will explore the history and significance of the painting and provide an overview of the conservation project funded by the Getty Foundation.
