Prized paintings restored and returned to New Bedford
NEW BEDFORD, Mass. —
The New Bedford Library is now boasting several newly restored paintings.
The Albert Bierstadt paintings took about a year to fix by New London, Connecticut-based conservators Lance Mayer and Gay Myers.
The restored paintings are "Mt. Sir Donald" (1889), "Sunset Light" (1861) and "Sunset on the Platte River" (circa 1875).
Bierstadt was a German immigrant who lived in New Bedford. His paintings hang in museums worldwide.
Money for the restoration came from a Bank of America grant.
