Cleaning and conservation of paintings
Cleaning paintings is an important part of the conservation process for works of art. Over time, paintings can accumulate surface dirt, dust, nicotine or other contamination that affects their original appearance and color.
The cleaning involves the removal of dirt, old varnish and other impurities without damaging the original paint layer. This restores the clarity, color saturation and detail of the painting and helps extend its life. Painting cleaning is best done by experienced restorers who have expertise in the conservation of works of art.
