There is no real future without preserving our history and our culture. ~ Dan Tarnoveanu
Art Conservation

The term "Art Conservation," in short "Conservation," is not identical with Restoration; although sometimes the terms "conservation" and "restoration" are being used interchangeably.  According to the Core Documents of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic & Artistic Works: "Conservation [is] the profession devoted to the preservation of cultural property." In recent years, the attitude of Art Conservators is to make all the restoration they undertake reversible, and they are more concerned with preserving the work of art for the future, and less with making it look pristine.

Renaissance Art, Restoration & Architecture's conservation methods and materials comply with The Code of Ethics and the Guidelines for Practice of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic & Artistic Works.  All materials used in all of our conservation projects for consolidation, retouching, and varnishing are only conservation grade and reversible; they can easily be removed in the future, if necessary. 

Because the Decorative Architectural Surfaces are an integral part of architecture, in our case historic buildings or monuments,
this category of projects is presented in the Historic Preservation section of this web site.
