Hi! I am the Managing Editor for Nerdbot.com I enjoy watching anime, learning about new things and keeping up with Nerd Culture. I love writing and hope to introduce people to things that they may not have known about before through my articles.

Now thanks to a collector hiring a furniture restorer instead of an artist specializing in this kind of work another work of art has been damaged irreparably. Immaculate Conception — by Baroque artist Bartolomé Esteban Murillo has been ruined… The art collector who had it in his collection paid the furniture restorer $1,355 dollars to try and restore the painting which originally looked like this.

And then this…

I guess you get what you pay for. Usually for a small image with minor flaws you would pay about what this collector paid. $800 – $1,500. But for larger paintings with more work to be done, like lifting the vibrancy in general you would pay from $10,000 to  $15,000. It sounds like they wanted to cheap out of hiring a professional and they paid dearly for it in the end. Unfortunately so did everyone else because this is now a lost cause.
