SEATTLE -- The Seattle Art Museum is restoring a Jackson Pollock painting from the 1940s that was altered in the 1970s with a coat of varnish.
The museum's conservation studio started the restoration work last summer on the painting "Sea Change." It's a cornerstone work in the museum's collection that represents Pollock's transition to a drip technique.
The museum invited reporters and photographers to its conservation studio Tuesday to see how paintings are restored. Recovering the original surface of "Sea Change" should reveal more of Pollocks' intent.
