PHILOSOPHY

 

Artworks ...

are complex objects, composed of several materials : support ( panel or canvas, paper, copper,.. ) painting mediums (oil painting, acrylic, or watter color...), and many times natural or synthetic varnish..., with different origins and sensitivities.

All paintings change and deteriorate with age. Accidents can happen. Unfortunately, many times, the most damage done to a painting is from an inadapted restoration in the past or storage practises.

The choice of an experienced art conservator-restorer, if you are looking for one, is important indeed crucial.
We provide academic expertise. We are trained in chemistry, art history and technology of materials.

 

Heritage Age Restoration: Painting and artworks

Each painting is carefully examined and the required treatment is outlined in a report.

  • Assessment of condition

  • Study of the range and cause of damage in a painting and recomendation of the best treatment

  • Full range technical investigation if necessary: paint analysis, pigment identification, study under UltraViolet -U.V, Infrared – IR, X-ray, and hyperspectral imaging

  • Following code of ethics

  • Treatment report

Artworks damaged for a long time, their materials have memory of form, a good intervention needs time. We let the master piece accept the treatment and we control gradually the evolution. Patience is a vertue...
