Although I have yet to received the drawing, I still wanted to post a photograph of the work just to whet your appetite. I will photograph more details and post them later for your enjoyment. Until now this will have to do.
Good news! I just spoke with the Conservation specialist and the restoration of the du Gardier painting is within the budget and will proceed. As soon as I receive photographs of the restoration I will share them with you. I really look forward to the restored painting taking a central place in my collection.
