Oil Painting Restoration

1238824_571632619562040_667198402_nAccumulations of dirt and grime from the atmosphere can deteriorate the surface of oil paintings over time. Varnish can yellow and darken, but far more seriously,  linen canvases can  rapidly deteriorate and be easily perforated leaving a weakened support for the paint film. This in turn can lead to the artwork cracking and becoming detached.

Fine works of art must be maintained to be preserved. At the Collector Antiques we will help to solve these conditions through an extensive process including; relining and consolidation of flaking paint and cleaning and retouching when and where appropriate. This will strengthen the artwork for lifetimes to come and return the work closer to its intended tone, brightness and condition.
