Old restorations/ retouchings may also be present on the surface when removing the varnish layer. These in many cases discolour and hide the artist’s original brushwork and even extend far beyond the damage itself, as in the example on the left..
Lion and Tiger provides specialist knowledge of old master paintings, twentieth century and contemporary art, conserving and restoring paintings from Pieter de Hooch to Claude Monet and Karel Appel.
Leading art conservation studio trusted by major museums, galleries, auction houses and corporate and private collectors
The studio has extensive experience in the conservation and restoration of traditional easel paintings as well as modern and contemporary paintings. We specialize in the treatment of paintings, offering collections care, storage consultations, preservation risk assessment, conservation treatments, and technical examinations.
The preservation of artworks is our main goal. There are many small improvements, such as hanging systems, felt on the rebate or backing boards that can significantly lower risks and decelerate the degradation of an artwork.
Services for art collections
We offer not only condition checks but also full collection surveys that can identify issues and help create a long term preservation and conservation plan.
