A meticulous conservation project recently repaired “Diana” and restored the sculpture’s gilding. How does her luster compare to these golden treasures?

Diana,” 1892–93, by Augustus Saint-Gaudens

White Tara,” 18th century, Mongolia or China

Joan of Arc,” c. 1874, by Emmanuel Frémiet

Garuda,” c. 1700–50, Tibet

Candelabrum (one of a pair), c. 1800, France

Recumbent Stag,” early 17th century, Germany

Seated Bodhisattva,” early 8th century, China

Portions of an Armor Garniture, c. 1550, Germany

More Art Monday is brought to you by ART 24/7.

Portrait of a Lady (c.1550). Peter de Kempeneer (Flemish, 1503-1586). Mixed technique on poplar. Städel Museum.
Because it combines the monumental Italian conception of the portrait with the busy, small-scale Netherlandish approach to landscape, the attribution of this portrait was long disputed. Its recent ascription to Peter de Kempeneer is the most persuasive proposal, since it offers a plausible explanation for the work’s conflicting “stylistic registers”. Trained in Brussels, de Kempeneer went to Italy as a young man, where he probably painted the portrait now at the Städel.
