Portrait with American Cove Frame

This painting suffered a few small tears and a dry canvas with dirt particulates over the surface and reverse. After de-fitting it was carefully cleaned on the front and reverse and then re-lined with Pe-cap to increase the foundational strength. In-fill and in-painting concealed the holes and matched the colors to the originals.

A new custom hand carved frame was prepared in the American Cove style with lamb’s tongue carvings, a black liner, 22 karat gold, and an archival fit.
