The painting “Persia” by Martiros Saryan is being restored on financing from the Armenian Ministry of Culture. The seven-member group headed by Gayane Kazanti started the restoration works on June 25.

Armenian specialists help Italian expert Luciano Billiot to restore the canvas.
Conservation and restoration of Martiros Saryan’s damaged paintings started at Sayran Home-Museum in 2006. Special technologies and equipments and corresponding professional experience was necessary to do that hard work. The Ministry of Culture decided then to allocate financial means to the pilot program.
