Retouching of paintings in Copenhagen
Retouching of paintings is a technique used to restore or enhance damaged or missing areas of a painting. It may be necessary to perform retouching if the painting has experienced paint loss, cracking, or other forms of damage over time. The goal of retouching is to restore the painting's coherence and aesthetic integrity by applying colors and techniques that match the surrounding areas.
A skilled painting restorer will use precise and careful techniques to ensure that the retouching blends naturally into the painting and is not visible to the viewer. The retouching should respect the original intention of the artwork and preserve its aesthetic value while ensuring its long-term preservation.
