Hale restored and fine art varnished applied.

Saint Simon

Restoration of S. Simon`s original robe. Changes to his robe were made over the years, effectively changing the original light purple colour. Please note the difference in colour when comparing this picture to the picture on the right. 

Saint Simon

Restoration of Saint Simon`s robe. Also note the difference between the original hands uncovered in this image, and the overpainted hands on the picture to the left. Leduc was a masterful painter, if you zoom in on the left hand, you will see the details in his painting, including veins in S. Simon's hands.

Restoration of S. Thoma's original halo. Note the loss of plaster, and consequently parts of Leduc's original mural, around him.
