This large oil on canvas by Spanish artist Marcial Gomez came to Miller Fenwood with severe cupping and extensive cracking, particularly in the black-painted areas.
For restoration, the painting was first hydrated and then relined with new, Beva 371 linen. We filled and in-painted the areas of cracking not closed by this process. After re-stretching the painting, we applied new varnish.
The new custom frame is a four-inch-wide “ear,” carved in the Spanish style and gilded with 22 carat gold.
