Tintoretto Restoration

"Man in Armor," oil on canvas,c. 1550. Jacopo Tintoretto (1518-1594) painted portraits and other works during the Italian Renaissance, focusing on muscular subjects, emphatic gestures and confident use of perspective. Damage from previous restoration attempts are clear, appearing as white lines and cracks. Treatment included use of fills, which is the preparation of a substrate or exposed area of a canvas in preparation for inpainting. In painting is the replacement of pigment lost through previous restorations with modern paint and techniques.
