artdetectives derby 603x452Thursday, December 12 at 7 pm on KPJK TV in the South Bay. Along with a hippo skeleton, a stuffed hedgehog and a log boat, Derby Museum has the best collection of Joseph Wright of Derby paintings in the world. Wright of Derby is considered one of England's greatest artists. He painted the most astounding “birth of science” scenes, his landscapes and portraits are exquisite, and he was inspired by the Industrial Revolution. But can our team peel back layers of modern restoration on a mysterious landscape painting stuck in the Derby vaults to reveal another hidden masterpiece by Wright of Derby? Dr. Bendor Grosvenor and Emma Dabiri investigate a painting which suffered industrial scale restoration in the 1970s. Can it be saved and carefully restored now? While Bendor travels to Italy to find where the landscape may have been painted, Emma investigates Derby as the cradle of the Industrial Revolution and the 'lunar-tics' of the Midlands who changed the world through science and philosophy.
