The author of the present report was in 1973 entrusted with the restoration of a nineteenth-century painting on the front surface of which is shown the image of the Man of Sorrows (,,Ecce Homo” ) whereas on that rear an earlier painted Veraikon. In the course of restoration from beneath of the front painted layer another figure of the Man of Sorrows apearod, this one, however, dating from the 17th century. With the restorer’s examination has been covered the panel, the ground layer, the pigments and the binder. The nineteenth- -century overpaintings were chemically removed by the use of N,N-dimethyl formamide and, finally, the surface was cleaned mechanically. . The above described examination and cioaning made it possible to establish the teclmiques applied for execution and to determine the time at which the painting was produced that, among the others, could be defined basing on the diagonally planned artistic composition of painting, the composition of its ground layer (bolus with calcium carbonate admixture) and also that of the oil-resin binder. Artistic analysis has proved that the style of composition is one that can be found in paintings of similar kind coming from the period covering the 16th and 17th centuries ; however, the painting under discussion is one belonging to a group of those smaller in their size representations of Ecce Homo and, according to every probability, was painted by an artist from the North- -European circles active in Baroque period.
