Finishing touches were made to this interior scene from Romania believed to have been done around 1910. Flood damage had caused widespread ailments.
New linen was adhered with an extra layer of Pecap to provide foundational strength. Widespread craquelures were addressed with in-painting, and the old varnish that had yellowed was removed. Careful cleaning was carried out across the entire surface. Some before and after photographs show exactly how transformative the results were and give an idea to what restoration is capable of.
In conjunction with our suite mates, The Nines Framing Studio, a new frame was given to the artwork with European styling, highlighted by an egg and dart motif on the inner rail, and a vine motif on the outer rail.
