Join me on this voyage as we search for buried treasure. I mean buried issues this 1772 oil painting may have. In this first episode, I breakdown what I see once a painting comes in my door and we begin the disassembly. While we hoped for smooth sailing, alas, it’s drama on the high seas.

The Alfred by Robert Cleveley, 1772
