Close-up view of conservator Stephen Rickerby using a brush to apply solvent to gauze facing from a previous intervention in order to solubilize it for removal. Gauze facing had already been removed from one section and the fragile area has been temporarily consolidated with strips of Japanese paper. Photo: Guillermo Aldana.
