Mary Bustin Conservation specialises in the conservation and restoration treatment of easel paintings
to museum standards.
We hold particular knowledge
and expertise in the conservation of modern and contemporary paintings. We restore paintings of all ages from
traditional oil on canvas to modern synthetic and mixed media artworks on a wide variety of supports. Preventive measures
are a natural component of all our treatments.
Surveys of Collections to assess and prioritise conservation needs for collection management plans: useful for fund-raising initiatives.
Collection Care especially tailored towards museum collections: with an emphasis on conservation framing.
Advice on the condition of a painting before purchase. This includes a report on its condition
and assessment of resource implications for the future such as major restoration or special storage requirements.
Conservation support and advice for loans of paintings to exhibitions in the
UK and International venues.
Treatments are individually
tailored for each painting so we offer a free initial estimate based on examination of the painting and discussion of the
issues. We are happy to discuss requirements. Please contact us by telephone or email.
