Workshop of Conservation-Restoration of paintings Sophie Jarrosson. Restoration of the altarpiece of the cathedral of Laval

The workshop of conservation-restoration of paintings is accredited Museums of France. Located near Bordeaux, in the Entre-Deux-Mers region, I welcome you and take care of the conservation and restoration of your oil paintings. I receive you at the workshop by appointment(contact).

I work in conservation-restoration on works dating from the 17th century to the contemporary period. In addition, I work with laboratories for UV, Infrared, X-ray and HD photography. In addition, I have equipped the workshop with an electron microscope, a low pressure heating table and UV light. I offer advice and expertise in preventive conservation. I work for private individuals as well as for communities and also for the state services.

After the study of the work and the alterations (condition report), I propose a protocol of interventions.

I specialize in the restoration of the paint layer but I also treat the supports (canvas and panels).

The workshop of conservation-restoration of paintings is based on the respect of the deontology of the profession which is articulated around the three following great principles:

  • Legibility: restoring an aesthetic integrity, a coherent unity to the work in accordance with its historicity.
  • Reversibility: the materials used in restorations must be as non-invasive as possible and must be removable.
  • Stability: Interventions in time, materials used between them and with the materials constituting the work itself.

You will find on the site before/after pictures of interventions. Here
