No matter what the importance, caring for your paintings can preserve them for you to enjoy for years to come. And if a painting is damaged, all is not necessarily lost. Restoration and conservation treatment may be able to restore paintings to beauty.

Keep in mind that we are not refinishers; rather, we strive to retain the integrity of the original finish, gold leaf or hand-painted surfaces.
