Our Services

Painting Restoration Services

Our treatments use all stable, archival materials.  With the exception of cleaning, our treatment methods are fully reversible.  This ensures that newer and better methods and materials can be implemented should they become available in the future.

Photographic documentation and a written treatment report are provided upon completion of every project.
