After a complete conservation treatment by Eric Gordon, involving stabilization of the support and paint layers, discolored varnish removal and re-varnishing, and filling and retouching losses, our signature painting is now brighter, clearer, more powerful, and truer to its original colors. Advantage was taken of the painting being off view to x-ray the entire surface and record an overall infrared image with the most up-to-date technical equipment, on loan from the National Gallery. This kind of technical research is critically important to curators, and conservators, understanding of the complex process of conceiving and executing this perspectival view.
