Rescuing an Egg Tempera Work

"Parvedean The Governor", a Welsh Section D Stallion, lived at Relhok Farm in Muskoka, Ontario's cottage country. He and his driver trainer Jeffery Kohler were a familiar site on the Brackenrig Road. They competec throughout Ontario and the Eastern United States in combined driving events.

Every once in a while a work has challenges. Such was the case with "the Gov". "Gov" was badly damaged, from heat & humidity, after exhibition. The surface foxed and bloomed. In effect the work was destroyed. The gesso layer and carrying board was not affected. All digital reference files are gone,  the Gov had returned to Great Britain after his North American career. From a linear study and black & white record. Gov is completely new.
