The state of safety before restoration:

The picture before entering the restoration was stored without a subframe. The previously duplicated canvas was strongly deformed from twisting the picture into a roll with the front side. This caused the appearance of a large number of horizontal rigid breaks of the colorful layer and soil, sections of pronounced craquelure. The loss of the connection of the colorful layer with the soil and the basis led to the appearance of a large amount of scree along the edges of the breaks and crumps of Krakelura, as well as to the appearance of larger losses. On the entire surface, numerous records have changed in color. The varnish coating turned yellow, the surface of the colorful layer was contaminated.

Complex of the events:

The colorful layer and soil was strengthened with the elimination of deformations, laying raised fractures and craquelure in the plane. The old thin dubbing canvas, which does not provide the strength of the base, was removed during the restoration process. To strengthen the author’s fabric, the picture was fed on a new canvas, stretched on a subframe. Superficial contaminants are removed. Restoration soil is brought to the loss of the loss. Displacement of yellow varnish and removal of records was carried out under the control of the visible luminescence of the surface in UV rays. After removing the records, minor losses and scuffs of the author’s colorful layer were revealed. At the final stage of restoration, a reconstruction of the colorful layer is carried out strictly within the loss, the picture is covered with a protective layer of varnish.
