Cracked oil paint layers, dull or faded colors, yellowed varnish, tears, scratches, and holes in old oil paintings often make people think that its too old to fix or deal with. Yet, it is exactly those kinds of problems that an art dealer has repaired all the time to restore the decorative appeal of even the finest art pieces on their walls. Even the best art gets dinged, banged up in moving, ripped, scratched by a collision with the house pet. All efforts and processes of PROPERLY restoring oil and acrylic paintings are not equal as veteran art dealer Anthony Christensen, the founder of Anthony’s Antiques and Fine Art operating in Salt Lake City, shares… and this is a BIG share! Tony has been in business for many decades and knows all about the good, the bad and the ugly of art restorers.

You shouldn’t and can’t, successfully, try DIYs at home to restore these delicate masterpieces, if you want to maintain the art’s value, historic authenticity and original look. Don’t do brain surgery on yourself and don’t try and restore valuable or historic art! The most effective idea is to opt for a wonderful professional art conservation business like Fine Art Conservation Laboratories, as Tony relates in this video:

All the people at Anthony’s Antiques and Fine Art will relate to you that FACL’s skills, business sense and door to door service is all part of their service as the best conservators anywhere in the Western United States and many feel nationwide. Tony’s business of art and antiques and has been working with FACL for around 15 to 20 years.

On a visit to the Springville Museum of Art with Dr. Verne Swanson, Anthony glanced at a perfect looking painting that was previously in a terrible condition. He was shocked at the finesse, flawlessness and excellence of the restoration work of removing the cracks and cleaning the painting. He immediately inquired about the art restorer who did the work and the museum director referred him Scott M. Haskins and his team.

In the video he recalls his first introduction with Scott Haskins and his professional lab and states that he has always had a pleasant experience working with these dedicated professionals since then.

Anthony is often presented oil paintings from people wanting to sell beat up neglected, but nice oil paintings that look like they’ve been abandoned. Their art gallery brings them to life and preserves them for generations to come. While telling the story of his meeting with the museum director and while talking about the wonderful works of art they have in their galleries, he specifically referred to an amazing 19th century French painting of a woman with a parrot by Emil Villa and tells that he and his team are always in search of unparalleled quality art pieces. He also mentions that 120-year-old paintings of this sort are often found in what seems like unfixable condition. But, thankfully, Scott Haskins and associates at Fine Art Conservation Laboratories are skilled enough to know what needs to be done.

At the fine art and antique gallery, they are finicky to the extent that they pay attention to even the tiniest of the details. They want the best skills and the latest techniques of the restorers to bring the best out of the artwork to be restored. The final look of the painting is good enough to deceive the uneducated viewer’s eye because it looks as new as if it was painted yesterday but it is super important that vintage art maintains its vintage looks and original integrity. Minor details matter a lot for a person who deals in art and antiques.

According to Anthony’s Antiques and Fine Art in Salt Lake City and The Springville Museum of Art there is no need to hesitate; You can put your trust in the professional painting conservation team at Fine Art Conservation Laboratories and its exemplary services. Anthony takes pride in endorsing these art conservation professionals who have become valued friends. He considers it a privilege and lucky to have the opportunity to work with such a competent and likable professional as Scott Haskins.
