In Australia, the National Gallery of Victoria has spent a year restoring Poussin's Crossing of the Red Sea. The video above shows its unveiling - and it's nice to see a museum making such an effort to show the results of conservation to the public. Here is an excellent site charting the restoration process. You can even watch a video of it being varnished. More galleries should follow this example.
Update: get the full lowdown on the painting from David Packwood here.
