Since 1968, the Studios have been involved in the restoration of oil paintings. There is no cost for the examination of artwork either at the owner’s home, or here at the studios. To determine the actual cost of the work, testing is required. This enables us to determine the appropriate procedures for conserving any painting.
Once that is determined and a cost estimate is provided, it can often take two to three months to complete the work. Our general philosophy is to return the painting to its original state with as little methodology as possible. What is most important is preserving the actual image, and stabilizing the support where necessary. We are happy to refer customers with works on paper to professional services.
