THE EYE OF THE RESTORER:  AN EXPERT ASSESSMENT OF JANE AUSTEN AS A YOUNG GIRL

The following condition and conservatiion report on the Rice Portrait was compiled by the Paris-based restorer Eva Schwan, who examined and cleaned the picture, millimeter by millimeter,  over many months (2010-2011).

 

As a result of her work, Ms Schwan, who holds diplomas in painting restoration from both the Courtauld Institiute and France's Institut national du patrimoine (INP),  knows more about the physical and technical features of the painting than anyone else alive.

 

Her conclusions are of immense significance and we are most grateful  for her permission to place them on our website.
