NancyM's deep thoughts

We received this comment on this object a while back: Hi, my family owns one of these oleographs. How would we certify it? What are the best methods to conserve it. Is it possible to restore an oleograph and should it be attempted? Our conservator, Beverly Perkins says: We recommend consulting a painting conservator in your area for any conservation or restoration efforts. If you go to the American Institute for Conservation web site, you can search for a specialized conservator in your area. The link to the AIC Find a Conservator page is: http://www.conservation-us.org/membership/find-a-conservator#.WJo4TPWcEdU As a non-profit institution, we do not do appraisals, but please visit this page: https://centerofthewest.org/explore/western-art/f-a-q/ where you will find a pdf listing art appraisers you might wish to contact.
