Nick Channels Mildred G. Burrage

March 1, 2016

Fogg Art Restoration is all about meeting the challenge and solving the problem.

 

 

 

When Earle G. Shettleworth Jr. Maine State Historian and co-curator

of the upcoming show,

"The Art of Mildred G. Burrage",

brought a special challenge to our studio; 

Nick Dalton was given the assignment of recreating the original mat.

 

 

In the 1940s Mildred Burrage painted a watercolor on a gesso panel.  

The subject was a bright and colorful bouquet of flowers.  

She created a french style mat to enhance the explosion of color.  The mat was executed on Bainbridge #80 illustration board. The board was not acid-free and over the years it became foxed and overly discolored.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just like Burrage, Nick used colored pencils and gouache to replicate the original mat.  Then, he glazed the piece with Tru-Vue Museum Glass.  The final step was to refit the acid-free materials and the artwork into the original frame which Teresa Fogg had freshened up.

You can view this piece as well as nearly 100 others at the show:

(A great tribute to a great Maine Artist)
