Portrait of Gabriela, signed l.r. illegible '72, oil on canvas-board, 15 x 11


This painting was brought to Fine Art Restoration by the son of the subject of this portrait. It was painted in the 70s when Gabriela was in her 20s.

The paint was peeling off of the under-coat. Since it was on canvas-board, the problem was treated from the top surface. First the painting was thoroughly cleaned, and then the peeling paint on the face and neck were carefully adhered to the board. Some filling and in-painting was then applied, and finally the painting was varnished. As can be seen in the above before and after, the finished restoration was very successful.
