J. Holmes Winter Scene Restoration

This painting came in with extensive ash and soot residue, the result of a fire, which proved to be more challenging due to the subject matter, a winter scene. Miller Fenwood treated it with a three-part cleaner, utilizing restorer’s chemistry.

The original canvas had several holes in it. Miller Fenwood re-lined the canvas with new Belgium linen. Conservation was finished with satin varnish.

James Holmes flourished in the 1890s, and resided in Kansas City.
