Despite severe or dramatic changes in appearance, fire and water damaged paintings can be treated in a cost-effective manner, often without any loss in value. When conservation work is performed properly, it is possible that values may increase. Our services can typically save 60%-80% over replacement costs. Each of our Paintings Conservators has a Master of Arts in the Conservation of Easel Paintings and a comprehensive background in applying modern scientific techniques that are essential for conservation. Regardless of age, condition, style or materials, our staff is experienced in museum-level treatments that adhere to the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works Code of Ethics and Guidelines for Practice.
