Artist unknown, Saint Jean-François Régis, date unknown, oil on canvas, 77.5 cm x 48.5 cm
This painting mostly painted with thin coats of paint did suffer from a few damages caused by not storing correctly. There were obvious signs of the paint and ground loss in some areas, slight paint flaking caused by the paint over dryness and there was a puncture as well.
Consolidation of the unstable parts of the paint and whole paint surface was done as the first step. After good cleaning the damages of the canvas and the paint layer were succesfuly restored and retouched. The painting was refreshed and protected with a new coat of varnish considering there were traces of a varnish found on the edges of the painting, above which was the decorative frame, seen under UV light before any conservation and restoration works were done.
