Chen Houses in Orange and Pale Greens

Large oil on canvas, 52 1/4″ x 52,” by Chen was at great risk due to delamination. It was necessary to consolidate from the front and the back, using gentle heat and weights: a process that took several months. Contaminants from the paint surface were cleaned, and egg tempera was used to in-paint the areas of loss.

A cedar stretcher bar with cross braces was made, and the painting re-stretched.
