All sculpture must be protected, both indoor and especially outdoor installations.
In fact, all sculpture should have a continuing maintenance program in
order to preserve the original metal finish and patina. Unfortunately,
until recently most people didn't realize that neglect, environmental
pollution, vandalism, and even toxic fumes can take a devastating toll.
years ago, we created our Maintenance and Conservation Service to provide
assistance to the museums, parks departments, and collectors who asked
for professional help. At first, we worked locally restoring and repairing
monuments in Central Park, the United Nations, and the World's Fair grounds.
Within five years we were repairing and maintaining all kinds of sculpture
all over the country in a wide variety of locations.
because of our foundry knowledge of metals and their unique problems,
we have developed our own repair and restoration methods that are specifically
designed for each problem. Outdoor monuments require different treatment
than indoor pieces, and both should only be restored by an experienced
the years, we've repaired, restored, and repatinated works by Archipenko,
Remington, Moore, Miro, Ernst, Giacommetti, Bourgeois, Lachaise, Tiffany
- and many other important sculptors. In addition, our regular maintenance
programs continue to preserve sculpture and save them from extensive,
and often costly, restoration in the future. Our work is often coordinated
with recognized conservators and meets today's accepted conservation standards
