Paintings Conservation and Restoration

From the early paintings in the Fourteenth Century to the work of contemporary artists, the paintings conservation and restoration field embraces a broad range of materials and techniques. From the old egg tempera technique to the contemporaneous acrylic painting, there are a wide variety of conservation techniques to be applied according to the necessities of each unique artwork. Among the primary Painting Restoration treatments it can be mentioned the structural conservation of the supports (canvas, panels, metal plates or contemporary composite materials), the delicate cleaning of surfaces, removal of darkened or yellowed varnishes (including, if necessary, the elimination of old overpaints) and the filling and reintegration of losses.
