Joseph Wright of Derby – A View Near Tivoli C. 1783-86

Italian Landscape – A View Near Tivoli by Joseph Wright of Derby came to the studio following an accidental damage whilst on loan. The painting had received an impact from behind which resulted in quite a complicated tear that had become further distorted during the time between the incident and the paintings conservation. The broken edges of the canvas and paint layer didn’t align in many areas and were therefore overlapping in others.
