Paper Conservation

Some prints, drawings, watercolours and other works on paper need conservation before framing is advisable. We work with established and trusted paper conservators. This may involve de-acidification, removal of secondary supports, removing old tape and repairs; washing to remove staining, foxing or mould; mending tears; backing paper with linen, infilling losses and re-touching and a number of other processes. Below are some before and after examples of restored prints:
