Removing 200 Years Old Yellow Varnish From 399 Year Old Painting


Art dealer Philip Mould shared  an incredible restoration of an oil painting on twitter which was covered in varnish for the last 200 years. After restoring it with a mixture of gel and solvent, Philip left viewers amazed.

“A remarkable Jacobean re-emergence after 200 years of yellowing varnish,” he wrote on Twitter. “The painting was originally in a private collection in England,” Mould told The Telegraph. “We started restoration of the painting after extensive testing of the varnish on an oil surface on oak panel. A mixture of gel and solvent was created, specifically just to remove the varnish and not to damage the underlying paint. It’s different from normal restoration, with the gel suspending the solvent and working in a more controllable way.”
