The Painting Conservation Studio

The painting conservation process begins with a visual examination that enables us to suggest possible treatments to the client. Detailed photographic documentation is taken of the art work to record its' condition before treatment is begun.

After visual and chemical analysis, an estimate is written and sent to the client for approval. At this stage, a plan of action is discussed and procedures determined for maintaining the integrity of the piece without compromising the historical value. Once treatment is completed a report and images of the treatment process are created and can be provided to client upon request.

Our philosophy is to maintain the original artists' intent and to perform the least invasive treatments possible.

Our studio is equipped with a custom made 8' x 12' hot vacuum table that enables us to treat and line oversized paintings.
