How we work with

Whatever the scale of your collection, there are many ways we can assist you, such as: monitoring your collection’s environment; cyclical maintenance and surface cleaning; pre-purchase condition reports; condition reports for a sale; natural disaster preparedness; assisting with loans; or assisting with insurance claims and appraisals.

We take immense pride in working with leading national and international institutions. Whether we are treating artworks, advising on preventative conservation measures, or assisting with the installation of complex artworks, we are always happy to accommodate and work within the budgets available.

At ArtCare Conservation, we often work with appraisers, loss adjusters and insurance companies. We frequently also work with estate attorneys and auction houses. Using our decades of accumulated resources and contacts within the art community we’re able to accommodate and implement any fine art conservation project.
