Cleaning a painting with smoke damage 30 sec video

Cleaning smoke damage from artwork, other framed items and collectibles is a service we routinely take care of. Paintings are often darkened by discolored varnish too. This gorgeous tonalist vintage painting, about 1920, by Granville Redmond  re-emerges from the darkness to its former glory. It glowed after we cleaned it and put the conservation grade varnish layers of it.
