The Museum of Fine Arts has received a grant from a European not-for-profit art foundation, to be shared with the Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga, Portugal. The grant total amounts to about $59,300 and will be used for restoration and conservation projects at each museum.
The Executive Committee of The European Fine Art Foundation awarded the TEFAF Museum Restoration Fund to the MFA last week, which the museum will use to restore a 1634 painting by Rembrandt, “Portrait of a Woman Wearing a Gold Chain.”
The work is one of a pair of paintings of an unknown husband and wife and has not been treated in 50 years, which has led to an accumulation of varnish on the painting’s surface. The MFA has also committed to restoring the corresponding painting, “Portrait of a Man Wearing a Black Hat.”
Following the restoration project will be a TEFAF presentation in March in the Netherlands.
