"The Empty Sleeve"
Since opening Barry Bauman Conservation, I have had an opportunity to work on many fine historical paintings. To date, over two-hundred have received treatment at no charge including works by Van Dyck, Magnasco, ter Borch, Bouguereau, Twachtman, Gifford, Robinson, and Tanner. This list now includes John Singer Sargent, arguably America's finest portrait artist. The following study reviews the historical context of his "Portrait of General Lucius Fairchild," its conservation treatment and examines a Civil War hero who, at one time, was one of the most powerful men in America.
