    Dear Mr Wennestrom,
    We are the Sarti Gallery, owner of the painting by Simone dei Crocefissi that you have reproduced on your website. Would you mind to remove the image that you have (of the painting before cleaning) ? We can send you the image of the painting cleaned.
    Yours sincerely,
    Sandrine Le Nech

      Thank you for your email. Please do send an image of the painting after it was cleaned. I think it’s very helpful and instructive to show that one aspect of connoisseurship is the ability to “see through” surface dirt and discoloration and recognize the masterwork that is otherwise obscured.

      I’ve sent my contact information to your email address. The subject line reads: “here is my email address for the Simone image”
