Art Restoration Services

1. Prints, maps and other works on paper can darken or easily become stained from a variety of circumstances.  Surprisingly despite all the mishandling, poor choice of framing materials and environmental insults that paper art receives the damage may not be permanent or irreversible.

We offer basic cleaning and deacidification services which unless the damage is particularly severe

may be adequate to return the paper to its original look.  Mat burn, light staining, mold, foxing, staining from various substances including oils and organic compounds like food, grass, dirty water and other damaging agents may be successfully addressed in our workshop. In some cases tears and holes

can be repaired.

Future damage can be prevented with proper framing using archival materials and glazing that screens out harmful UV3 rays.

2. Oil paintings can often be restored even if the canvas is damaged, aged, stained or if paint is missing.  Often the darkening and discoloration seen on many older paintings is simply the top layer of varnish that has absorbed the smoke, grime and pollution from many years of hanging uncovered in everyday environments.  We employ several artists who can remove old varnish and brighten up paintings and/or restore losses in the actual work.

Contact us for a free evaluation, tests and estimates for

the costs associated with the restoration and repair of your fine works of art.
