Damaged paintings may seem hopeless, but often even severe damage can be made nearly invisible with the proper repair. Water damage may loosen the ground, causing loss of paint or mold growth on the surface. The artist’s technique itself may also cause problems that put the painting at risk for significant damage. All of these issues can be addressed by our skilled conservators. Each damaged and skillfully repaired painting below represented a different challenge. The challenges have been met, and the paintings can be seen once again as the artist intended.
Cleaning; repair of tears; cracks and holes; consolidation of lifting and flaking paint; relining; replacement of missing paint; expert reconstruction of missing areas; re-stretching of canvases.
Bend Picture Framing has restored many different types of works on paper: watercolors, lithographs, pastels, wood cuts, drawings, etchings, , old maps, posters, fine art prints, letters, photographs, and signs.
Typically, damage to the works on paper occurs due to:
Changes in humidity and temperature: storing works on paper in basements, attics, or hanging them on the outside walls
Faulty framing: mat boards containing acid and lignin, use of adhesives, lack of spacers in between artwork and glass
Exposure to the light: sunlight or fluorescent light or any other intense light source without UV protection glass.
