If you stop to consider the many adventures and mishaps that have befallen the beloved Mona Lisa, it won’t surprise you that a damaged piece of artwork is not necessarily destined for the garbage can. Just because you have a piece of artwork that isn’t worth the fortune that the Mona Lisa is, doesn’t mean you aren’t feeling a pit in your stomach if it has gotten a tear or puncture. The good news is that canvas repair is possible, and you should at least have it assessed by a professional before giving up.
Getting back to Mona Lisa, did you know that she spent many years in a humid bath house? She looked down upon bathers at the Palace of Fontainebleau, resulting in damage that was further worsened by a well-meaning restorer who put on a thick lacquer that ended up horribly fracturing. That look has stayed, unfortunately. She has also undergone such atrocities as theft, having acid thrown on her, and having a rock tossed at her. If she can live through all that, it stands to reason that professional canvas repair could do wonders for your artwork.
