These ex­am­ples show just what a dif­fer­ence care­ful restora­tion and re­pair can make. The por­trait on the pre­vi­ous page was cleaned to re­move 160 years of grime, re­veal­ing a beau­ti­fully coloured and de­tailed piece.

The land­scape was also cleaned, but had some dam­age to the sky as well. Alice cleaned the work then care­fully re­placed the miss­ing paint us­ing a tech­nique which would al­low the process to be re­versed, if nec­es­sary.
