Picture cleaning, conservation and fine art painting restoration

As well as offering picture framing from our workshops in Northampton, we also offer picture cleaning, painting restoration and conservation services. These include the re-lining of paintings on canvas, retouching of damaged artworks, re-making of old frames, and full picture cleaning and re-varnishing by skilled experts.
We can handle easel paintings whether on canvas, board or panel, both in oil or acrylic. Our specialists are also adept at re-colouring watercolours and ‘de-foxing’ them – often caused by humidity and variable temperatures – and the removal of paper-based artworks from their backing.

No job too large or too small

Whether it’s an incredibly valuable ‘old master’ or a small painting with mainly sentimental value, you can be assured that our professional restorers will take good care of it. Their job is to bring the artwork back to as close to its former glory as possible.

For art that has suffered flood or fire damage, don’t write it off. Again, bring it to our experts and let them see what can be done. At the same time, if you require an estimate for insurance purposes, we will be more than happy to provide this.

Our advice and estimates are provided free of charge, and larger pieces can be viewed in and collected from your home in our van.


A small part of our business is providing valuations either for sale or for insurance purposes. If this is something you are interested in, please make an appointment with our friendly and helpful gallery staff.
