Restoring the Marquise de Pompadour's portrait

15 November 2017

Canson® is proud to have enabled the portrait of the Marquise de Pompadour to be restored. Check out the mini-series about the restoration on our Facebook page.

The Louvre's restorers and framing and gilding workshop staff applied all of their expertise to make this project a success: framing, removing mould and dusting the marouflage canvas upon which the sheets were placed... 

Now the Marquise has got her shine back! And she is safely tucked away in her frame for millions of art lovers to enjoy for many years to come. 

 

Every Wednesday from November 15th onwards, we'll be putting a new episode in the mini-series about the restoration on our Facebook page.
