EDUARD CHARLEMONT PORTRAIT PART 3

Next phase of the Charlemont portrait came to a completion. Major work was done to suture the tears that acted as large visual impairments. Unfortunately, the larger of the two tears occurred in one of the areas with lighter color tones, the younger boy’s shin. This made it more visible, but it also allowed the restoration to be more transformative.

Between suturing the tears and repairing them with in-filling and in-painting, the portrait was re-stretched to strengthen its foundation. A critical step for improving its longevity. This is also important because of the size of the portrait, which is very large, 57″ x 87.″ Final steps for the frame are currently taking place. We can’t wait to see how it looks with both restored. Stay tuned for more . . .
