Train wreck at Montparnasse (October 22, 1895) by Studio Lévy and Sons.

The practice of conserving an unstable painting on panel by transferring it from its original decayed, worm-eaten, cracked or distorted wood support to canvas or a new panel has been practised since the eighteenth century. It has now been largely superseded by improved methods of wood conservation.

The practice evolved in Naples and Cremona in 1711-25, and reached France by the middle of the eighteenth century. It was especially widely practiced in the second half of the 19th century. Similar techniques are used to transfer frescos.
