Beyond the Frame: Meet the Faces of Lowy Art Conservation

Vodpod videos no longer available.

 

Picasso, Monet, Pollock, or even a Van Dyck. You probably know we’ve framed works by these great artists, but what you may not know is that we’ve touched their art in another, equally important way: through conservation.

For over 100 years, Lowy has been a leader in the field of conservation. We’ve done work for many of the great museums, private collectors and galleries. Today, our talented team is led by Chief Conservator Bill Santel and Senior Conservator Lauren Rich who together offer over 50 years of academic and practical experience.

Our conservators combine true artistic talent with the latest science and technology, and are dedicated to the preservation of works of art using the most reversible and least invasive, yet effective techniques. This approach has earned Lowy a reputation for the highest ethical and professional standards.

We hope you enjoy the video and we would welcome and appreciate your thoughts and comments.
