Part of a series of twelve Feasts of the Church, this Transfiguration oil painting was damaged by a flood. As for artwork in need of restoration, it really doesn’t get any worse than this. All of the canvases had to be re-lined with new linen and extensively cleaned. A few of them had to be completely restored. The frames also had to be restored.
Icon and oil painting restoration – The paint at the bottom of the above Transfiguration painting was under water and mud, requiring painting repair.
