Oil on copper

The use of copper as a support in paints is frequent after the 16th century. This technique allows the painter to work the glazes in a precise way. They are usually elaborated pieces of small dimensions.
The cleaning of the yellowed varnish and the reintegration of the small losses have allowed us to recover the quality of the piece.
