Restoration

painting, restorationallie surdovelComment

I just finished up this restoration for Complements Gallery in Smithfield, RI. It seemed like it was from around the late 19th century or early 20th, and it was badly re-stretched around the 70s. It was extremely dull, dirty and deteriorating and had a small hole that I repaired in the middle of the tree base in the center of the painting. I cleaned it, removed the varnish, brightened up the colors and added gold detailing where it had come off.
