Hear from the Restorers as they talk us through the restoration process:


“The conservation and restoration of the painting by Salvatore Micallef called “Our Lady of Graces” will be aimed to tackle a series of issues that any old painting faces with the passage of time. Before doing any intervention, we first study the painting using different scientific instruments and photographic equipment to carefully understand the kind of damage we will have to treat. We then do a series of cleaning tests to be able to gradually remove an accumulation of dust and dirt that settle and embed themselves to the surface of the painting. Like any old painting it will also need a structural treatment to tackle the deformations that have formed in the canvas because of its interaction with the auxiliary frame around which it is stretched. The restoration process ends with an aesthetic reintegration of all the losses and abrasions in the layer of paint. All this process is made up of visible and sometimes less visible interventions that seek to protect an important piece of Malta’s cultural heritage.” – PrevArti

We look forward to sharing this enriching experience with you. Save the date, and let’s come together to celebrate art and culture!
