The value of professional art restoration

Art restoration is an exceptional craft that requires extensive knowledge of materials and technique. It is labourintensive and often complicated. It is, however, a misconception to presume that restoring is extremely expensive proceedure. Restoring is more about conservation, than returning the image, to its original state.

A correct diagnosis and accepting international deontology, where the authenticity of the artwork remains, is crucial.

"Restoring artwork means working with care and respect for objects made by others, because we respect their worth,, from whatever their origin, as custodians, to pass on, through our skills, oblects of art to future generations whilest preserving the Past."
