Girl with Bonnet

  • After Jean-Baptiste Greuze
Adopted

This painting does not need much, but what little it needs will have a great impact. Some old overpaint needs to be removed and improved, but basically it just needs a proper cleaning. The rosy cheeks, delicate skin tones, and the whites of her veil and blouse are now obscured under yellowed varnish and dirt on the surface. Once cleaned, all that will come back to life as intended by the artist. At the moment, we keep this painting in storage, but once it is cleaned and looks its very best, we want to show it in the gallery. Help us do it!
