Allison & Ross was enlisted to provide conservation and restoration for this oil on canvas painting by renowned American Impressionist artist Edgar Alwin Payne. The painting, c. 1922-24, had been in the client’s family’s collection for decades when the client entrusted lead paintings conservator Eric Eschenbach with its restoration. Eschenbach cleaned the painting surface, which was quite dirty, as well as repaired a small dent and removed a nail that was protruding from the surface of the canvas. When the restoration was complete, Allison & Ross re-framed the painting in an updated, modern profile.
