This wonderful late 19th century floral still life on board came to us dirty, with paint scratches, paint chips and discolored varnish. You can see what appears to be the effects of either a coal heat or a smoking environment evident in the swaths of black across the painting.
However, our patient conservator cleaned the oil painting, touching up chips and scratches along the way, and revarnished the image. Now the purple flowers are vibrant in color, you can see details in the two bees, and the overall painting is now brighter.
At Frame Warehouse we can work with you to restore family heirlooms like this one painted on board or any canvas painting you might have.
P.S.: One customer brought in an an extremely dirty oil portrait on board of her Uncle that she had inherited. After cleaning the signature of the artist appeared in the lower right hand corner: Leroy Neiman
