This painting suffered from areas of loss and dirt particulates across the surface that had the effect of dulling the colors. The painting was de-fit and carefully cleaned with the areas of loss receiving in-fill and then in-painting to conceal them. A short and simple restoration with no surprises. And what an endearing picture and so well behaved. Its size is on the smaller side, about 12″ x 9 3/4,” which seems to add to its charm.
There is a signature in the bottom-left corner but not even cleaning made it legible enough to identify.
