    No doubt this was headed for the trash! I found it in the back of a shop torn, wrinkled, and filthy. I was able to flatten it, but I am yet to clean or attempt to inpaint.

    My best guess is that it is the work of Giovanni Segala (1663-1720), but neither the frame or the stretcher seemed so old. The back of the canvas had many repairs and it may be correct. Any opinions? Any restoration suggestions?

    Thanks.

      Very beautiful scene

      Could be genuine. I'd take it to one or two of the big auction houses before spending to much effort on restoration.

      thanks newfld, golgatha thanks for the tip.

      Look at the new photo, acetone did the trick but it seems to be lifting the red paint, any suggestions?

      Leave restoration to the professionals !

      Do you know any professionals who work for free?
    6. Golgatha Golgatha, 3 years ago
      Serious professionals don't work for free. One or two of the big auction houses can tell you whether the painting is worth a professional restoration.

      I know they dont. Ill shoot u over a photo when i complete the removal of the varnish, the in painting with historically accurate oils, the neutralization of the ground and then the revarnish.

      renedijkstra,

      I actually ended up doing some amateur repairs, and it came out ok. Everything I did is reversible. I will update with a photo soon.

      I remember finding samples of Segala's signature, and it matched. I would have to dig to find it again.

      Here is the piece hanging high up in my foyer. In the sunlight the wrinkling and scratching are very noticeable. I have to fill in some pretty large areas of loss. I figured since I found it in the trash, I would do what I can with it.
