What is Art Conservation?

Art Conservation encompasses the repair, restoration and preservation of works of art. The professional conservator uses materials and methods which provide for the long-term duration of the treatment as well as the important ability to undo any part of the treatment without damaging the original object (reversibility). The preservation and integrity of the original object is always paramount. The goal is not to make something look new but rather to make something look its’ age but well preserved. Sherman Art Conservation specifically specializes in the conservation of paintings. Treatments are performed on paintings and murals of all types and the many services offered include cleaning, canvas repairs and reintegration of missing areas (retouching).
