    After watching Baumgartner Restoration, I’m really starting to see that each restorer uses very different methods. I kept thinking of the ways that it could have been done differently, like adding a strip lining on the tacking edge or cleaning in smaller chunks. It would have been interesting to hear the restorer explain his process.

      And another point, nine months after the event. Some of Baumgartner's retouching is distinctly dodgy, especially eyes, he's not too great at eyes.

      @Leslie Johnson HI I am replying to you 5 months after this comment (Cry about it like you did before) to tell you that you should not speak like a professional about something you have no idea and it is a painting that is not yours, why do you take it so seriously?

    I had the painting my great grandmother bought almost a hundred years ago restored, and was amazed at how bright it was, the detail that was revealed. I am the fourth generation owner, and my son has dibs on becoming the fifth. Money well spent, in my opinion: I was not going to allow an heirloom to deteriorate further.

      Yeah and every chemical mix was kept secret, so what did you really learn? You would start with 10% isopropyl alcohol in distilled water and work up in 10% increments until it came clean enough.

      You are - take a look at art circles on the internet and visit your local galleries. Art is a recreational reflection of the soul that some people take on as an occupation, and as such it won't ever die out completely. There are fewer realism artists like this thanks to photography, but they still absolutely exist and make some of the most beautiful art.

      Back then, paintings were photographs as photography didn't exist. To capture a moment in time, you needed a painter and an artist who could capture every realistic detail. Artists back then are as photographers are today.
      Photography ultimately replaced realistic portraiture and landscape painting. Artists who paint today prefer to create paintings and art that don't mimic photography. Photography is also partly responsible for giving rise to abstract painting.

    • TheGrimSmile
      TheGrimSmile 2 ай бұрын +15

      You can absolutely find artists who still do this kind of work, but it's much less common. Portrait artists used to be the only way to preserve someone's image, but they were largely put out of work once photography really took off.
      That's why modern art is often less realistic and even abstract; artists are trying to capture something that cameras and other automation can't.

    Amazing piece of art, fabulous quality and really stands out.
    The restoration process is amazing, your ability to match colours that already exist on the canvas is meticulous, that is probably the hardest part, I found the placing of a varnish on the cleaned painting before restoration interesting and can understand the idea so that any future work on it can be carried out on the original surface if required.
    Many thanks for this wonderful tutorial, can we have one on relining a canvas at sometime please.

This was a fascinating look at the restoration process. It was beautifully shot. I would have liked to have heard narration from the artist doing the work as it was being done giving his thoughts as he went through the process, but overall this was a lovely way to spend nigh-20mins of my life.

    It's interesting that you didn't clean the painting while it was off the stretcher. Now you might miss some spots on the (tacking) edge and I would assume cleaning on a flat and supported surface is a lot safer for the painting than doing it while taut.

    OK. Almost everyone here watches the Baumgartner videos, me too. But the Baumgartner videos are made for the KZclip fans, you shouldn't forget that. Whether he works the same way when there is no camera is not known. He earns good money on KZclip on the side and has excellent advertising as a result. There are different ways to restore art and in the end it is the result that counts. And I really like that in this video. In any case, the picture would not look any better if Baumgartner had restored it.

      I assure you a professional art conservator understands the painting and the chemical processes subjected to it far better than a gallery attendant with an art degree. It's quite literally their job to know how the canvas, paint and varnish reacts to chemicals and different treatments. So don't you worry with your little art degree.

    Loved the use of “undo” varnish before retouching. Just like “layers” in computer graphics.

    I don't know why but watching this made me feel relaxed and at ease, I have really bad anxiety and no video ever helped me relax like this, ur soft-spoken commentary with the masterful work that you are doing, something in it made me relax and I thank you for that, does this guy have a chanel?
