Art Restoration & Conservation

Professionals who work in the art restoration and conservation industry must have several key attributes. They must have an eye for detail, a steady hand, and lots of patience. They should love art in all its forms, whether sculpture, fine art, water color canvas paintings, or drawings. That being said, some do have specialties, where they thrive best with restoration of antique books, for example.

They should have an element of creativity to their personality, although restoration and conservation can be very methodical in their execution. The ability to clean, restore, and preserve a variety of art work is key. They may have to work on deadlines, or they may be able to take their time on a job. It all depends on the request.

Art restoration and conservation experts employ many techniques, such as foxing stain removal. They also use tools, such as soft bristle brushes, to do their work.

Specialties may include paintings on both canvas and wood, frescoes, stained glass repair, and frame repair. Some may perform appraisals for private art owners, museum collections, and antique enthusiasts. They may also provide consultations, condition reports, and damage appraisals for insurance claims purposes.

Repair, reconstruction, refinishing, architectural detailing, and even upholstery restoration are additional services that may be offered by such companies. Since security is such a large concern for museum and gallery owners, many companies offer security and environmental control systems for art collections, along with custom crating.

Cleaning picture and images, along with restoring fine art oil paintings and prints, can bring back historic value, enhancing the culture and aesthetics of a piece. From paper sketches to etchings, art restoration professionals can provide an invaluable service to preserve and restore items that are held dear by many.

"The oldest fine art restoration company in the US. My Aunt who lives in a Ct. Shoreline town and works for their Historical Society, mentioned Oliver Brothers. I drove from Ct. to Boston to have my Great Grandmothers painting framed. The painting was shipped back by Oliver Brothers and I was in AWE at the results of what I received. I never would have believed what a new frame could do to such a m ..."

Art restoration and conservation companies that have lots of experience working with fine art like oil paintings, watercolors, varnish, books, prints, old drawings, etchings, canvas paintings with fine brush strokes, pottery, and porcelain should be able to not only restore your fine art artifacts so that they look as good as they did when they were first made, but also help prevent the art that you have from deteriorating and losing its looks so that it decreases in value. When you contact the art restoration and conservation companies, ask them if they have worked with solvents and cleaning chemicals to remove stains and corrosion from fine art artifacts. Ask them if they can work with paper, canvas, pottery, porcelain, and metals to be sure that they know about techniques that are appropriate for a wide range of works that might be found in a gallery. Ask them if their employees have been trained to work with the different styles and mediums of popular painters and artists so that you can get all of your paintings, pictures, and fine art objects cared for by the same group instead of using several. Tell them about the pictures, paintings, and other fine art that you need work performed on and ask the art restoration and conservation companies if they can give you a written price quote for their services. After you have talked to several companies, you should be able to compare these quotes so that you can choose a company that fits your budget.
