Art Restoration & Conservation

Whether you have a valuable piece of art that has been damaged or stored improperly, or you just want to clean that old painting that was handed down from your grandmother, we offer full service artwork restoration for oil paintings, most paper art, and some pastel and other media.

Serving the Boston area and beyond, people from all over Massachusetts and New England have brought their artwork to us for repair.

Our services include:

  • cleaning & varnishing of yellowed or dirty paintings
  • patching & re-lining of torn or thin canvas
  • in-painting & re-touching skinned or missing paint
  • re-stretching, flattening,  etc. 

 

We must see the art in person to determine the course of action needed to restore or repair it. We will provide you with a free estimate and a thorough explanation of your options. No work will be done until you give us approval.   Contact us by phone or email for more information or simply stop in with your art. If you would like a rough estimate before coming in, please complete the Ballpark Estimate form.

Types of Artwork & Damage That We Restore

OIL PAINTINGS

Oil and acrylic paintings on canvas are both remarkably resilient mediums. We have cleaned and restored paintings with:

  • nicotine or soot stains
  • massive holes or tears
  • flaking, peeling paint
  • crazing & severe cracking
  • fire, smoke & water damage

Normally, the painting can be fixed to a point at which most people will not be able to detect the repair with the naked eye. The cost varies considerably depending upon the extent of the damage, but is often not as expensive as people imagine. Check out our Before-After Gallery for some examples of different repairs and full painting restorations we have performed.

 
PAPER ART

Paper artwork and fine prints unfortunately are often not as resilient as canvas. Watercolors, etchings,  lithographs, etc. each present a whole different set of issues. 

Paper art often suffers from:

  • foxing & fading
  • acid burns from old cardboard or paper mats
  • water & mildew damage

Fortunately paper art can often be restored to acceptable levels depending on the damage. Removal from acidic environments along with bleaching & re-touching can give outstanding results. 

Often, simply re-framing using conservation methods can be a surprisingly effective way to stop the damage,  and get your art back up on display!
