Frame Restorations and Replicas
Oil Painting Conservation and Retouching
WE ARE ONE OF THE VERY FEW PLACES IN THE COUNTRY THAT WOULD TAKE ON A RESTORATION PROJECT OF THIS SCALE AND COMPLEXITY.
Frame Restoration and Gilding
This beautiful hand carved Florentine frame was hanging in a prominent downtown Indianapolis home. One day, the hanging wire broke and this magnificent frame fell to the floor, breaking into many pieces.
To bring this masterpiece back to it’s original beauty, Anatoly and his team completely restored the salvageable parts and pieces. For parts that were not recoverable, new pieces were re-carved by hand. Once back to it’s beautiful solid structure, 23k gold leaf was applied in the traditional gilding process over the entire frame's surface.
It took many hours, a team, tools, knowledge, and talent. Fortunately Indianapolis has all at Petrov Frame Atelier.
Stop by our shop to see this restored beauty!
This is an example of what we can do when it comes to reproduction frame making. This piece hangs in a boardroom with many other framed portraits, all having identical frames that are no longer available for sale. It was important to the client for all the frames to match. We can create an exact replica frame honoring the latest edition to the boardroom...It's what we do.
OIL PAINTING CONSERVATION AND
We clean and retouch oil paintings returning them to their original beauty.
Cleaning decades of grime from this heirloom portrait increased it's value and restored color and detail.
