Is there Hope for this Rizal Painting??

Da Vinci said, “Art is never finished, only abandoned.” This abandoned oil painting, however, is in dire need of fixing. And look at how Rizal’s head is still peaking through like it’s crying out for, I don’t know, renovation of the painting or the things happening to his countrymen…

Is there Hope for this Rizal Painting??

The miserable artwork was abandoned at the corridor of a building of the College of Fine Arts at the University of the Philippines. UP Law Dean Danilo Conception is calling out people who have photographs or written information in aid of its restoration, according to this post on Facebook:

Do you think restoring the G. Gomez painting would be possible?? Bringing it back to life would need accurate basis though; a badly-damaged painting is a pretty big project…

If you do have some information, don’t hesitate to turn them over to UP as soon as possible!
