Specialist Restoratation Techniques

Artwork may require restoration for several reasons, and there are key signs to look out for that suggest your piece might benefit from professional attention.

One of the most common indicators of artwork needing restoration is discolouration. Over time, exposure to various elements can cause the colours in the artwork to fade or change. This could be due to sunlight, moisture, or the aging of the materials used in the artwork itself.

Any visible damage, such as tears, holes, or scratches, indicates that restoration may be necessary. Additionally, less apparent damage like flaking paint or a loosening canvas can also signal the need for restoration.

Yellowing or darkening varnish:
Artists often apply a clear layer of varnish over paintings to protect them. However, this varnish can turn yellow or darken over time, affecting the colours of the painting.

Mold or bacterial growth:
These can seriously harm the artwork and pose a significant risk if not addressed promptly. Signs of such growth include spots or a fuzzy appearance on the artwork.

Even if there are no obvious signs of damage, the age of the artwork might necessitate a check-up. For instance, it is standard for a painting to be cleaned every 50 years, as varnishes can begin to yellow around this point.

If you notice any of these signs, it’s advisable to consult with a professional restorer who can assess the artwork’s condition and recommend appropriate steps for conservation and restoration.
