Hans Thoma (1839 - 1924) Der Verlorene Sohn and Pan Prints Are Back From The Restoration Labs

Before and After Comparisons.........

Before restoration...

After restoration....

I am happy to report that the two Hans Thoma prints (Der Verlorene Sohn - 1919 and Pan - 1893) have returned from the Paper Restoration Conservationist in much better shape. The original paper color on both prints is a nice cream color and all that dark stain from non-archieval materials has been removed. I will have to mat and frame them now for display. Forgive my photography but it does not do them justice.
