It’s not often I get to work on large pictures like this. The glass had been broken in a recent house move resulting in the glass scratching the surface of the canvas. The customer not wishing to get a picture restorer involved asked me if there was anything I could do. I obtained his authority to touch up the painting.
I took the frame apart and colour matched the painting with watercolour paints colour disguising the damage. I replaced the glass with stronger 3mm float glass as the piece was over 4’ x 3’. Reassembled with new offset clips on the reverse making a secure package of the antique frame.
