The same applies to your conservation/restoration needs. Whether you are interested in restoring your Old Master painting or your Modernist painting, most conservation studios have specialties just like appraisers and art dealers. If you need a watercolor restored then a conservator who specializes in works on paper is what you need. If you need an oil painting restored, again you would want someone with knowledge in those types of conservation techniques. Sculpture requires a special hand and special knowledge. I am pleased to be able to offer you free advice and referrals to a qualified professional. I do not receive any compensation from the conservation studios for referring you to them. I highly recommend the individuals below:
