A pair of pendant paintings attributed to Francesco Zuccarelli (Italian, 1702-1788 )
Oil on canvas
Gift of Judge and Mrs. Macauley Smith 1982.22.2; 1982.22.1
These two paintings require fairly straightforward conservation treatments. Moderate improvement is anticipated, and it is our hope that they can be cleaned, treated, and appropriately preserved. There are significant grime deposits on the surfaces of both paintings, resulting in poor color saturation. Once removed, a compatible stable varnish will be applied to help preserve the paintings and improve their appearance, color and overall design.
