The art of art restoration is as much of an art as art itself is, maybe more so. But you must be gentle because the stakes are high. The way you restore an artwork is based on what your intention is. Some schools of restorative practice believe the primary goal should be to preserve the work for the future. Others believe it should be to make the art look as much like the “original” as you can (although opinions on what the original looked like can always vary). Restoration either way is often controversial because it involves irreversible alterations to something. If it’s worth restoring in the first place it’s probably something famous, historically significant or a master-work, and in that world alterations are typically something akin to sacrilege. The latest idea in restoring art is to make it look better while ensuring that all changed are impermanent and totally reversible. Wouldn’t that be nice. [Ryan Nimmo]
