Textiles at The Met

This inside look at some of the Met’s most fragile works – the textiles – shows the range of preservation techniques required to ready these works of art for display. Combining artistry with technology, Met technicians encounter specimens that are sometimes pristine, but more often show signs of deterioration and wear. From GREAT MUSEUMS: An Acquiring Mind: Philippe de Montebello and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
