Cleaning an Old Painting

This is from an on site restoration. I was hired by a company that specializes in church restoration to clean and repair these old paintings in a church in NYC. It was of course a huge on-taking. And, while you may not have paintings this big in your home (these are 6 x 18 feet) these do show what cleaning reveals with an older painting. Cleaning after a fire, flood, even after years of smoking is important to preserve your painting. Take a look at the results below; these show an amazing difference, and it was even finished yet.
