Sensitive Art Conservation & Restoration
Conservation-restoration is a profession devoted to the preservation of cultural heritage for the future. Conservation activities include examination, documentation, treatment and preventative care. Lancaster Painters Australia are experts in art conservation. We have the skills to sensitively clean art and to recreate artwork or decorative design even if the original is in poor condition, using techniques such as spectroscopy and micro analysis or mechanical methods.
