Unvarnished

One set samples was left unvarnished. Artists typically varnish their finished paintings, not only for aesthetic reasons, but also to protect the paint layer from harmful environmental factors such as dirt and UV light. Although it is common to varnish, there are instances when paintings are left unvarnished so it was necessary to have a set of samples that represent this choice by the artist. It was also advantageous to have a unvarnished set of samples for comparison to the varnished ones.
