Oliver Brothers (Est. 1850) is the oldest fine art restoration firm in the United States. We perform museum quality art restoration and conservation on paintings, works on paper, antique and contemporary picture frames, gilded objects, icons, murals, and sculpture.
We have set the standard for re lining oil paintings with our patent for vacuum press table in 1937. Virtually every art restorer in the World is using this type of table in their practice today. We have many interesting stories, from armed guard in front of our studio making sure that Rembrandt painting is safe, to many discoveries underneath layers of paint and discolor varnishes.
We had an honor to work on many historically important art restoration projects. Notable artists whose works we have been treated: Avery, Goya, Carracci,Cezanne,Church, Copley, Miro,Paxton, Rembrandt, Rockwell, Wyeth (please see our website for more comprehensive list).
Oliver Brothers Custom Framing was formed as an extension of Oliver Brothers Fine Art Restoration. As art restorers, we frequently had requests by our clients to look for appropriate framing solutions. Our background working with antique fine art and antique picture frames has guided us in our efforts to assemble a comprehensive selection of historically accurate period frames. In addition to period frames, we also offer a wide range of contemporary picture frames.
We offer museum-quality materials and an inspiring selection of specialty frames and mats. Our conservation framing methods are designed to extend the longevity of your artwork and enhance its beauty.
