Twigs on Snow

This painting is owned by a private foundation.

Although not strictly painting conservation, Valentine retouched a water damaged giclee photographic print by Abbas Kiarostami, the Iranian filmmaker. Treatment entailed retouching to match the background and repainting the ink dots in order to disguise the water damage. These giclee photographic prints are notoriously susceptible to water damage and the retouching had to match each ink dot produced by the printing technique. The images below show the damage before and after treatement.

Before, showing drips.
The giclee photographic print was upside down when the water was splashed and therefore the splashes are running from bottom to top in these photos.

After treatment
