The restorator acts directly on the painted face: cleaning off the smock and dirt, removing the old and yellowed varnish, filling the loosened paint, inpaiting the filled areas , and setting up a new protector varnish.
Giving back the painting its beauty and luminosity, the restorator offers us the satisfaction to enjoy it again.
