Hoogsteder & Hoogsteder offer advice on the restoration of Old Master paintings, which must always be examined at first hand in advance. Depending on the value of the painting owners may opt for a certain type of restoration or decide not to restore at all.
Read the following articles to learn more about some spectacular restorations:
1. Illustrated article on a spectacular restoration of a picture by Ludolf Backhuyzen, published in Hoogsteder Journal 11.
2. Article on the restoration of Jan Steen’s Wedding Night of Tobias and Sarah, published in Vereniging Rembrandt Bulletin 21, no. 3, 2011. Two parts of the painting were reunited in 1996, and the painting is now on display at Museum Bredius.
Hoogsteder & Hoogsteder advise clients on optimal lighting to display oil paintings. We have extensive experience in this field and follow the latest developments closely.
