BENEFITING: FRIENDSHIP CIRCLE

Louisiana Chapter Vatican Restoration

THE STORY:

State of preservation:  The painting is in generally good condition, but the surface of both the canvas and the precious frame need urgent restoration.  previous restorations will need to be undone. the alteration of the colors is due to both oxidation and the aging of the varnishes.  some of the pictorial surface of the painting is flaking off and the canvas might need a new support to  permit proper flexing of the fabric.   

Restoration process includes:

- repair and strengthen the canvas  

- cleaning and touching up of the lacunae  

- removal of previous restorations  

- reintegration of the pictorial surface  

- reapplication and balancing of the varnish  

- photographic documentation  

- cleaning and restoration of the gilded  frame
