CHELSEA RESTORATION ASSOCIATES

RESTORATION AND CONSERVATION OF FINE OIL PAINTINGS

SERVICES

OUR RESTORATION SERVICES INCLUDE:

  • Cleaning
  • Paint consolidation and stabilization
  • Structural treatments including Beva linings, repairs of tears, punctures and dents
  • Inpainting of damages and missing areas of original paint
  • Application of a protective varnish layer
  • Custom stretchers, panels and supports

All treatments are documented in detail and include digital “before” and “after” images.

Upon entering the studio, each painting is carefully examined and a treatment report is outlined with the condition of the work, recommended treatment and estimated cost. Upon completion, a final detailed report is provided.


CONDITION REPORTS:

In addition to restoration, we assist our clients by assessing the condition of paintings, writing detailed condition reports and proposing an appropriate restoration treatment. Through both writing our own, as well as interpreting existing condition reports, we are able to guide our clients with professional and objective advice.

We are available for on-site evaluation of artists’ estates, private and institutional collections.
