Oil Painting Restoration
by picture restorer Alan Brown
Alan is an expert in cleaning and restoring paintings, breathing new life into the finest artwork. His work reverses the accumulation of years of dirt, smoke and grime which make oil paintings become dark and details obscured or lost – ‘it’s as if you are viewing the painting through amber-brown tinted glasses’, but once the work is complete, you’re left with a true beauty once again.
Although the painting itself is important, the picture support receives the same amount of care and attention. Alan repairs and stabilises the support, whether it’s wood panel, metal, paper, cardboard, composition board or canvas.

A sample of original paintings available in the shop
Yesterday I collected a 19th century family portrait in oils, which Alan had cleaned and restored. He also
replaced lost moulding on the frame and brought it back to its original splendour. I am delighted with the
quality of Alan’s work, which he completed within the time he had estimated. He also gave me some
interesting background about the artist. The picture now glows as it hangs on the wall, and I am sure will
be a treasured possession of the subject’s great, great grandson, to whom the picture has been given.
