Restoration and new custom frame for Marcial Gomez

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.
