The portrait of an Argentinian general tore easily as a result of weak and brittle canvas. A new lining gave new strength to the painting so it could be restretched. Further repairs included filling and retouching and application of two coats of a high quality, non yellowing varnish.


At Tess Everett Murphy Fine Art Restoration, paintings and frames are meticulously restored with the highest attention to detail. Drawing from her many years of experience, seemingly unfixable damage of all kinds are skillfully erased bringing the orginal work back to life. Dirt, grime, and discolored old varnish are cleaned from the surface revealing the vivid colors and fine detail of a once dull and lifeless painting.
