Paintings are cleaned by

carefully removing disfiguring

material from the original paint.


        Material like...

soot and smoke,  grime, dirt, mud,  liquids, foodstuff, markings, graffiti, aged varnish,

mismatched overpaint, water damaged varnish.

Most discoloring material can be delicately and safely lifted from the surface, with little or no effect on the original paint.
