Description of work "Art Post Gallery restored a large oil painting that had several areas of damage where the paint had peeled and where paint had separated from the backing board. They chemically removed dirt and a very heavy layer of cigarette smoke residue. They touched up peeled paint with new oil paint to match the old and glued down paint that had separated from the backing board."
Member comments "They did fantastic work. The painting looks 1,000-percent better andthan the way I remember this family heirloom piece from many years ago. I couldn't be more pleased. It took about six weeks, the same amount of time they estimated. I give Art Post Gallery my highest recommendation."
