Cleaning Oil Paintings

24 Feb 2009

Q: Could you please tell me how to clean an oil painting without damaging the paint?

A: Are we talking about maintenance or restoration? There is no system of cleaning that can be applied to all situations, which is why the diagnosis and treatment of art objects are best done by a trained professional conservator. I would not want to place your artwork in harm's way.
