This painting suffered from water damage that left a bulge in the center of the canvas. Furthermore, a considerable amount of dirt had found its way onto the front and reverse, and a mold growth had started on the reverse. Paint loss had occurred noticeably along the bottom.
The painting was treated for mold and then archivally re-lined to mitigate the bulge as well as provide more foundational support for the paint film. In-fill prepped the canvas where areas of paint loss had occurred and in-painting concealed them. Careful cleaning throughout the front and reverse, and archival varnish to finish.
