Cossack Soldiers

 

This little painting is overall in very good condition. Unfortunately, as is so often the case, time takes a bit of a toll. Grime has accumulated on the surface and the varnish discolored, obscuring what is actually a beautifully preserved painting. It does not take much, but this little bit will make a huge difference in the appearance of the painting. See the little bright spot in the middle of the image below? That is how much the sky will brighten up after treatment!
