Here is a 19th Century landscape of the Scottish school that I have restored on the left side while retaining the original and damaged condition on the right. This painting is 23” high and 29” wide. Note the holes in the lower right corner – similar holes were repaired and inpainted just above where the road curves right into the trees. Also, notice the scrapes and abrasions in the trees at the top right – similar damage, restored by inpainting, was common in the trees at the left side of the painting.

Six of these are at the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersberg, six at the Berlin Museum, five at the Louvre, four at the Dresden Museum, and two at the

Wallace Collection.
