Help a Veteran Restore an Heirloom
She kept it when we divorced years later and it was accidentally torn some time after. She still held on to it when I requested it.
When she passed away a few years ago, it went to my oldest daughter who knew how much it meant to me and recently gave it back to me.
I now seek to have it professionally repaired and restored as close as possible to original and once again be displayed and enjoyed in my senior years.
Now retired on a fixed income, the cost of restoration exceeds my budget and I would greatly appreciate any help in having this piece of art restored.
I have already sent the first half of the cost to the conservator, but remain short of the overall cost.
An update, he did discover that at some point in time, someone tried to glue the tear back together and he must also remove all glue residue on the tear to properly rejoin the canvas and restore it.
As explained in my original appeal, the cost will well exceed my budget as my only income is Social Security and a very small Veterans Disability payment.
I hope to hold a small get together for donors once the painting is finished, so they may see what their donation went for and hopefully, experience the same calm and peace of mind viewing it that I do.
If you appreciate any help that I have given to you or just appreciate seeing a piece of art by a European master properly restored, please consider donating. No amount is too small and you can contribute anonymously if you desire.
And again, to those of you that have already contributed my heartfelt thanks and appreciation.
My heartfelt thanks to all that have donated to help me fulfill this dream of mine to see this painting restored and displayed again. We are past the halfway mark but are still short of what the estimated cost is going to be.
Please consider helping me achieve my goal, Thank you.
Why not donate where your contribution will be used for something of worth?
All donations are applied to a professional repair and restoration of this piece of fine art by master painter, Ludwig Munninger.
Art is a terrible thing to waste, please help. Thank you.
My appreciation to all that have contributed so far, we’re halfway there.
