The Restauration

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.
