Our team of experts is qualified to take full responsibility for the acquisition and care of the entire range of art objects within a collection.

Art Maintenance

After an initial review, we submit the artwork to a number of restorers to obtain pricing on the work to be done. If additional expertise is needed, we call in top experts to review the work and suggest detailed plans for restoration and/ or repair. If required, we also coordinate and facilitate all packing, crating, storage and transportation services for your artwork to travel both domestically and internationally to the location of the conservator. At all times, we carefully balance the cost of restoration against the value of the artwork and its long-term health.
