Here is an example of how the painting looked before and after restoration by Grashe Fine Art Restorers:
Oil on canvas, art by Anthony Vandyke Copley Fielding, 1787-1855.
Anthony Vandyke Copley Fielding, commonly called Copley Fielding (1787-1855), was the best known and most prolific of a family of brothers who were all painters. He trained initially with his father, travelling with him to Liverpool in 1807 and then to Wales in 1808. In 1810 he entered the Royal Academy schools where he was taught by John Varley (1778-1842). Fielding was particularly proficient as a watercolourist – he exhibited at the Society for Painters in Watercolours regularly from 1810 and was elected president in 1831.
