Al Jackson Peace Sign

Unfortunately this oil painting had been dropped on a newel post which caused a tear, leaving a circular indent. Threads had not torn completely but had stretched. Weights brought it back into plane and heat helped to bring the threads closer together. Sutures were placed and re-lining was done to give more strength, with final in-fill and in-paint done to conceal the damage. This is a case where you might expect the damage to beyond repair, but we just wanted to show what it possible.
