Detail of face during cleaning

close up of face from the painting showing where the surface is half covered in a darker layer of discoloured varnish

The very thinly painted face was approached with great care but the transparent blue and green glazes in the corners of the mouth and eyes proved as technically sound as the rest of the surface and showed no sign of sensitivity to the solvent mixture used to remove the varnish.
