People Are Obsessed With Watching An Art Dealer Remove Varnish From A 200-Year-Old Painting

Bob Ross proved it can be very soothing to watch someone paint, and painting can be an extremely relaxing activity and a great stress reliever for the artistically inclined.

But watching art dealer Philip Mould remove layers of ancient varnish from a painting is like watching art magic in the making, as the subject is restored to her former beauty bit-by-bit.

People are so obsessed with Philip's classical painting clean ups that they begged him to start doing a live stream of his restorations, which probably won't happen, but at least Philip has begun posting short videos of the process.

And just so you can see how important Philip's work is, and what a drastic difference a little varnish removal makes here's a before and after of a fully restored painting. It's like washing your windows after driving through the desert!
