An adopted work of art, a restored work of art

Works, especially paintings on paper, are inherently fragile and often need to be restored before being shown to the public. The bronzes, the patina of which is sometimes soiled 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 varies depending on the deterioration observed. It can range from a few hundred euros to a few thousand. The adoption is of variable duration ranging from 5 to 10 years. It is not final and can also be transferred from one work to another.
