Restoration Process

Restoration before and after

A large part of the work involves the restoration of originals from Museums or private collections.

Most of the original documents date from as early as 1880 through the 1950'. At that time, the technology for inks, papers & printing was very different. The passage of time leaves deep marks, scratches, cuts, color fading & paper desingegration.

The process involves reconstitution of the original document in keeping with the "spirit" of the original, in design as well as colors. It's at this point that the artistry of the restorer comes into play.

The final image is then reproduced with the state-of-the-art giclee printing processes. Giclees are made slowly, one by one, allowing the best control of each print produced.
