The Curative Conservation

The restorator’s work is divided in two complementary periods.

Curative conservation: At this point the restorator will define the different operations needed such as resolving the adhesion problems between the painting and its support, patching on tears, lining a punctured canvas onto a new canvas, checking the stretcher bar…..

Its intervention will provide a new breath to the piece of art.


The restorator acts directly on the painted face: cleaning off the smock and dirt, removing  the old and yellowed varnish,  filling the loosened paint,  inpaiting the filled areas , and setting up a new protector varnish.

Giving back the painting its beauty and luminosity, the restorator offers  us  the satisfaction to enjoy it again.
