Last year I posted about winning money from the Bronze Door Society to conserve my favorite painting in the collection. Well, I’m happy to say that the painting has now returned from conservation and looks amazing!
Notice how dark the painting was. It’s difficult to see, but there is a tear on the pyramid, just above the second smoke stack. The canvas was loose on the stretcher and part of the artist’s signature (as well as people and camel feet) were wrapped around the bottom edge, obscuring them.
