Maynard Dixon Painting Restoration, Art Conservation
Recently, a wonderful cowboy painting by Maynard Dixon was rediscovered after being hid away from the public for the last 110 years. It was found by super sluth art dealer Steven Stern Fine Arts. Here is a quick 2min. video of the art restoration cleaning of the painting:
I’ve been working on paintings by Maynard Dixon since working with Dr. Wesley Burnside in 1978. He published the first book on Dixon.
Many of the Dixon paintings that are not often seen, like his depression era paintings, I had access through Burnside. Over the years, Fine Art Conservation Laboratories has worked on paintings by Dixon for art dealers throughout the Western US, museums and private collectors.

Restoration materials that can withstand the test of time and the elements is an important part of being a professional restorer. Just using off the shelf products or using, a glue for instance, because its traditional is NOT a good professional point of view. In our furniture conservation lab we are very concerned whether what we use will cause problems in the future or do its long term job of preservation. I can tell that Fine Art Conservation Laboratories has the same professional criteria and good judgment.
