Our Lady of the Rosary

Unknown master of 18c (?). Oil on canvas, 173 x 83cm. Church of St. Trinity, Užpaliai.
The artwork was examined before restoration, in very poor condition - with no stretcher, deformated, paint and primer layers falling from the support canvas. Examination in IR, UV and X-rays has not reveal any changes in composition or overpaintings. Losses of the paint layers clearly visible in x-radiograph precisely match those visible with a naked eye. Some renewals can only be seen on the areas uncovered by the metal coating in refleted UV photograpgh.
