peach garden before restoration


condition before the restoration

the huge hanging scroll is broken in several spots and the silk in the painting is in these places damaged and desintegrating.

unfortunately it will turn out in the restoration process that in the last mounting was used unfitting glue in the honshi and this damaged the honshi even more.

the silk in the top and bottom parts is beyond repair. these parts and the poorly chosen brocade borders of the painting are replaced.

the painting needs to be thoroughly cleaned.
