surprise provenance

today we received this small frank reaugh pastel in for an estimate. along with the piece came a box of the artist's handmade pastels, which we'll use when (and if) we do treatment of the sweet (poor) thing. more than a third of the original pastel is lost, so we will propose to fill and inpaint what we can with a conservative approach (no restorers here! and yes there is a difference).
