    Sir Coward
    Oil on canvas 71cm x 57cm

    In this next set of slides I will comment on the extent of restoration. I mentioned before 'in painting'. With this in mind some cracks can be 'filled'. The view of this process being that large areas of missing paint and related damage can be repaired while not departing formĀ  the historical 'form' of the painting.

    There is a particular patten in passages of small cracks (craqualure) In- painting is about the 'maintaining' of this appearance. Avoiding distortion or departure.
