Painting and frame restoration
In addition to the usual dust and dirt on the surface, a painting is often yellowed or clouded with nicotine stains. Microbial infestation, such as mold, requires special measures under specially protected conditions.
By removing the varnish, browned and antique oil paintings can be refreshed and extensively cleaned. To ensure that the paint layer is always firm, we putty any chipped areas and retouch them true to the original. Cracks in canvases are also glued and breakouts are repaired. Repairs are made to damage to the stretcher frame and to canvases that are no longer flat. Gilded picture frames are refreshed and plaster chips are remodeled, retouched and patinated again.
