Course: Painting Restoration
Program: Internship Course
Period : Jun.12,2017-Jun.8,2018
In order to add more practical experience in my career, I decided to study in Florence, the home of restoration work. I wish to improve my painting restoration techniques through experiencing various types of restoration works as well as learning the latest restoration techniques. I am looking forward to letting you know about my daily life in Florence and my weekend visits to churches, museums and so on.
My instructor cleaned this painting for me. After old discolored varnish was removed from its surface, the original clean pastel color appeared from underneath. At this point, discolored paints from the past restoration work got removed.
I filled the defect with plaster, and then scraped the plaster off to the level of the original painting surface. I then rebuild the brush traces and fine lines of the canvas. After gouache applied as a base color dried, I varnished over it.
More story from my half-day Genova visit. The Duomo in Genova was begun to build near the end of the 11th century in the Romanesque style. It was renovated in the middle of the 13th century in the Gothic style, so it now has 2 different construction styles mixed. Impressive white and green striped marbles decorate its facade and inside. Its gorgeous chapel was devoted to John the Baptist. It was made back in the Renaissance era to keep his Holy relics.
