Protecting An Art Collector's Wealth By Conservation And Framing

Whether an Old Master or contemporary painting, poor condition and improper framing can significantly reduce an artwork’s financial value over time.

Not only does the right frame greatly enhance a painting, increasing its saleability, but it also protects the artwork. Exposure to temperature and humidity fluctuations, the damaging effects of sunlight, incorrect fitting or installation, and the use of acidic materials can all harm an artwork ultimately causing a loss of value.

Join art advisor Annelien Bruins and expert conservator Lauren Rich as they discuss how specific conservation treatments and correct framing can preserve a painting’s condition and therefore maintain or even enhance value.

This informal event is designed for wealth managers and other HNW fiduciaries. You will learn about the warning signs of physical deterioration and when to call in the art experts on your clients’ behalf.
You are welcome to enjoy refreshments and after our brief talk you are invited to peruse Lowy’s framing and conservation studio.

Please RSVP by March 13th to and we'll send you the location details. The event runs from 6-8pm.
