Restoration of Jan Bedijs Tom

This pastoral scene by Jan Bedijs Tom of the Hague School was painted between 1871 and 1873. Numerous varnish layers had been yellowed by the passage of time and environmental effects. Areas of paint loss had been poorly or inappropriately in-painted, notably in the body of the cow in the foreground.

For restoration, the varnish layers were removed and the painting cleaned, revealing much more detail.
