An Art Restorer in Paris

Ella Tushinsky, 58, is an art restorer. She is pictured here working on a painting from 1630, attributed to Pieter van Mol, from Flanders, called “Diogène cherchant l’homme,” which she restores in collaboration with her colleague Laurence Fragne. The painting belongs to the Musée des Beaux-Arts Orléans.


I photographed her in her beautiful atélier a few days ago.
