Artist unknown, untitled, no provenance; a ghost of a painting requiring a herculean effort to conserve. Old work that must be undone, hidden damage and a paint layer that is actively deteriorating. So why bother. Paintings are the vessels for our emotions, memories, and history. They are the places we store happiness, sadness, good times and bad. When we visit them they affect within us emotions that we can’t otherwise solicit. And for this we can reach deep and summon the effort to conserve this piece. For the family who own it, it is certainly the most valuable and important painting in the world.
