Closer to Van Eyck The panels of the Ghent Altarpiece are coated with layers of varnish. Varnish serves as a protective coating for paint layers and has important optical functions, since it saturates a painting's colors and creates a more even surface. However, most varnishes gradually degrade over time, getting brittle and opaque, and becoming a darkened and yellowed layer that can dramatically impact the perception of a painting's colors and tonal values. Since a degraded varnish will make the dark areas appear lighter, it will also affect our perception of the rendering of volume and space. Applying a new layer of varnish over a degraded one can sometimes improve the situation for a time, but restorers routinely remove and replace old varnish layers.
