R. Turner Watercolor Restoration and New Frame

This watercolor had been greatly effected by acid burns and other invasive contaminates. Tape was also adhered along the edges, leading to acid contamination. Deep cleaning treated the stains and chemistry baths lifted the acids. Sun damage was addressed by refreshening the watercolor. New museum mat and UV-protecting glass was given to a new custom frame, which we are quite pleased with and think it deserves its own paragraph.

A brand new design with a Spanish reverse slope and basket woven corners and sgraffito in gesso. Two tones of gold were incorporated, silver and regular. We are greatly pleased with how this new design turned out, and with how well it compliments the artwork.
