An adopted work of art, a restored work of art

The works of art, especially the paintings on paper, are essentially fragile and often need to be restored before being shown to the public. The bronzes, whose patina is sometimes fouled by time, are cleaned to regain their natural shine. Lacquers also need to regain their original splendor. These necessary restorations over time are carried out with great care by specialists. The cost is variable depending on the deterioration observed. It can range from a few hundred euros to a few thousand. The adoption is of variable duration going from 5 to 10 years. It is not final and can also be transferred from one work to another.
