On restaure et on redore

Atelier Boudet-Rol - Art de la Feuille d'Or Versailles
At last Saturday's art and crafts show, Stéphanie Boudet-Rol, who restores paintings, shared a stall with Marlène Voisin, whom you had seen here (along with her seal dog!) Can you see the restoration work in the middle of the painting on the right? Below, a different focus to show Marlène's gilding. Stéphanie's website is this way and Marlène's Art of the Gold Leaf is that way. VDP is fascinated by how these young ladies enable people to keep their treasures in good shape!

Au salon des métiers d'art de samedi dernier, Stéphanie Boudet-Rol, la restauratrice de tableaux, partageait son stand avec Marlène Voisin, encadreur-doreur que vous aviez vue à l’œuvre ici sur ce blog (avec son phoque chien). Vous voyez la restauration en cours au milieu du tableau de droite ? Le site web de l'atelier de restauration de Stéphanie est par ici, et l'Art de la Feuille d'Or de Marlène, c'est par là !

Challenging work, I would think.

Beautiful work! It must take quite a bit of patience.

We should be grateful to people like this for preserving our heritage. Without them, where would the palace be?

Dave said...

Wonderful to have such a skill and to keep the past alive.

Oh I know Ciel, restoring artwork is like art itself. Patience and skill, both of which I have none :)

Sometimes real craftsmanship is much better than art...

I'm in awe of people who can do work like this.

People who restore and salvage old things, whether they be buildings or art, are heroes. The painting restoration looks like it will be beautiful.
