In February 2016 three paintings in mixed media on hard board underwent some cleaning and conservation. Van Genk used all kind of materials in each painting with the risk of cracking and loss of paint, specially at the edges of the art works. Han Boersma, a very experienced art restorer, removed some of the during 50 years accumulated dirt, and restored some spots with a little loss of paint.
