A few stages of the conservation-restoration project

 

  • Treatments on the support: removal of old patches, inserts of canvas and tear mending, reinforced by new patches made with a non-woven fabric

  • Treatments on the front: varnish removal, as well as over panting and crude retouching

  • Details of old over paintings that covered the majority of the surface

  • Overall views after the removal of the over paintings and after restoration
