Repair of damaged paintings

Repairing paintings is an important part of the restoration process. Holes can occur as a result of accidents, insect damage or the ravages of time. To preserve the integrity and aesthetic value of the painting, it is important to carry out a careful and precise repair. An experienced painting restorer will assess the damage and the original technique of the painting to choose the best approach for the repair. The repair usually involves correcting damage to the canvas and subsequent retouching to match the surrounding colors and textures. The purpose of the repair is to restore the entirety of the painting and ensure that the hole is no longer visible, while respecting the artwork's original expression and aesthetics.
