BEFORE AND AFTER
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.
