Art Collector Wonders if His Painting Is Dirty

In the lab right now... For 75 years, this painting hung in a remote hacienda in the mountains South of Mexico City. Somewhow, it made its way to Southern California into the hands of a caring collector. He wondered if it should be "brighter"? Here's a picture of it during cleaning; the right side is clean and the left if still dirty. Wow!
