Frederik Cnockaert art restorer

Fine art works of art often suffer from neglect, ageing, improper restorations, accidents, etc. Valuable works of art are exposed to light,  temperature and to fluctuations in humidity. That’s why a regular examination by an expert is needed. In such research, we set the highest standards and use state-of-the-art technology. This applies equally to our restoration methods. 

Our philosophy is to alter the artwork as little as possible with respect to the original intention of the artist. To that end, we examine each work of art closely and tailor our methodologies to meet both the needs of the painting and client. We use only the finest materials and techniques which are found in major museums around the world. In accordance with our belief that restoration should be noninvasive, all of the work we do is fully reversible.
