EXHIBITIONS & GUIDED TOURS:
The Secrets of a Royal Portrait
21/09/2017-14/01/2018
A portrait of the last queen of Cyprus bearing secrets is shown at the new temporary
exhibition of the Leventis Municipal Museum of Nicosia. The portrait appears to date back
to the 16th c., and is considered one of the few Renaissance paintings of Cornaro to survive
to this day.
The “secrets” hidden behind the identity of the portrait are unveiled through scientific investigation.

The exhibition presents the results of art historical research conducted by a Curatorof the Leventis Museum, chemical and technical
analyses carried out by the Cyprus Institute and the Academy of Fine Arts in Dresden, Germany,
such as the restoration process of the artwork at a restoration studio for painting in Germany.
Hosting a one-day event to present the conclusions of the research, the Museum offers
the public a new experience of “museum learning”.
