Customer Question

I have a painting of Mona Lisa approx 30x40. It was painted over 200 yrs ago. It came from France to England to the USA. Painted on a linen. Has lots of crazing
I have had two experts look at it as it has a gouge that needs repair. Both told me it was too valuable to be repaired by them and it needs a museum restorer to work on it. I can text pics or email if I have an address It is much better than one that sold in a NY auction recently that brought $8000. Will appreciate help to find out what she is worth

Hello, At your convenience, please send a clear, in-focus close-up of the surface so I can see the texture and a view of the backside (do not remove from frame). ~Nora
