The damaged frame on the left has white, where the gesso was exposed and the gold gilding was damaged. Over time, soot and grime accumulated, diminishing the gold's luster. However, this frame is not beyond repair! The frame on the left was repaired and the gold was reapplied. The area at the bottom right hand corner best illustrates the gesso and gilding repair. The frame above it shows the damaged area. The result of this repair enables the owner to enjoy their art in the original frame for many more years.
