Much of what we know about works of art is the result of art conservation. Conservation brings to light new information about the work and enables the work to survive for future generations to study. My thesis combines conservation treatment and art historical analysis of an eighteenth-century engraving of Hannah Snell, a female soldier who hid her sex in order to join the military. The embellishments of her story inspired her fame and extended it to today, making this print an interesting and important work.
