The work that is subject to the restoration interventions presented in this article is a painting done in oil colors on cardboard. The subject of this painting is represented by a landscape with an isolated castle on a lake island, surrounded by mountains. The painting’s degradations cumulated multiple cracks and gap areas affecting the painting and the primer layers, together with areas of damage due to the painting’s exposure to excessive heat. The restoration operations (consolidation of the painting layers, the cleaning of the surface, filling the gaps in the primer and the chromatic integration of painting lacunae) have rendered the painting its original image.
