Here is a fascinating look at restoring an old painting:

Old varnish being cleaned from a painting of a lady

Restoration work by Philip Mould

I found the picture on the Colossal website, where you can read more about the background and see longer videos from @philipmould ‘s Twitter feed. I don’t know what solvent he is using for the old varnish but this probably isn’t something to try at home with a valuable painting without a lot of research!
