Painting Restoration - Adopt - Jersey Heritage

THIS ITEM HAS BEEN ADOPTED


We would dearly like to display this portrait of Captain Esnouf in his spiritual home and with lots of other salty seadogs at the Maritime Museum. But the captain has suffered over the years and as well as the scratches you can see on the portrait, the painting has also become detached from its stretcher. In order to preserve as much of the picture surface as possible, the portrait needs to be reattached to the stretcher, the scratches repaired and the surface cleaned.

The cost of this restoration is £4,200
