Removal of Glue Residue
Overpaint continued to be removed from the edges of the painting, uncovering previous restoration attempts and damaged areas.
Before Removal of Glue Residue
Brown-grey residues from an unoriginal glue coating were found on the surface of the painting in the bottom right corner once the thick overpaint and varnish had been removed.
After Removal of Glue Residue
The residues were successfully reduced using an aqueous emulsion (containing both water and solvent) revealing the original peachy tones of the woman's flesh.
