Please remember that this is just a brief discussion of the restoration/conservation process. There are many other procedures that may be needed, but these are the most common.
Should you find that a work of art you own needs some attention, we will be happy to assist you through our affiliate company – Scarpini Studios.

Gallery Updates: We are still searching for letters and documents pertaining to the lives of Daniel Ridgway Knight (1839 – 1924) and Julien Dupré (1851 – 1910). Should you have any information you can share with us, it would be greatly appreciated.
The gallery has also acquired new works by Edouard Cortès, Victor Marais-Milton, Emile Munier, Felix Schlesinger, Heidi Coutu and Sally Swatland – some of which have been added to our site.
Virtual Exhibitions: This month we have added one work to – Rehs Galleries: A Visual History … Leon Perrault’s Sleeping Putto. Painted in 1882 this work features a beautiful young cherub sleeping on a rose covered cloud. Rehs Galleries sold this angelic work in 1996 – 114 years after it was painted. The direct link to this work is:
Leon Perrault - Sleeping Putto
October was a very active month and a number of works found new homes; among them were Leon Girardet’s Le Poet; Antoine Moulinet’s Recess; and Heidi Coutu’s Giverney Reflection. However, the hot items were scenes of Paris and among the works that not only found new homes, but have been added to their respective Virtual Exhibitions are: Antoine Blanchard’s Place de la Madeleine, Winter; Quai du Louvre; Arc de Triomphe and Édouard Cortès’ Place Pigalle, Hiver; Place de la Republique (c.1949); Place de la Republique (c.1930); Theatre du Vaudeville; and Ma Mere.
Next Month: Continuing on my “How to Care for Your Works of Art” series I will discuss – The Environment … hum … could this be a conservation push? I do not think so!!!
