Lowy’s widely respected expertise has attracted clients from every sector of the art world. Our client roster includes renowned museums and fine art galleries, curators of institutional and corporate collections, and fine art auction houses such as Christie’s and Sotheby’s. Our comprehensive fine arts services are also an invaluable resource for many of the country’s top interior designers and architects, who collaborate with us to create architectural and interior design elements like cornices, mantle pieces and framed mirrors, in addition to picture frames.
Additionally, we are frequently called upon to care for prestigious private collections, including those of David Rockefeller, Ralph Lauren, Richard Manoogian and Mrs. Randolph Hearst. Ever since Lowy opened its doors in 1907, we have been the first choice for artists seeking top-quality conservation services and frames for their own artworks. Salvador Dali, Alfonso Ossorio, Arbit Blatas, Leon Kroll, George L.K. Morris, Paul Jenkins, George Condo and John Currin are among the many noted artists we have proudly served; as well as the estates of Maurice Prendergast, William Glackens, George Bellows, John Sloan and Max Weber.
Some of our notable projects over the years have included reframing Paul Cezanne’s The Bather and Vincent van Gogh’s Portrait of Joseph Roulin for the Museum of Modern Art, and the reframing of the large wall paintings by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, which are displayed atop the grand staircase in The Metropolitan Museum of Art. More recently, the curatorial staff of the White House used the digital Lowy Scan™ system to select a frame for Cincinnati Enquirer, an 1888 still life by William M. Harnett that was greatly admired by President Jimmy Carter. We also recently fit a beautiful period frame for The Old Mill by Jasper Francis Cropsey for the Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk, Virginia.
Over the years, our conservation studio has conserved paintings by a wide array of artists , including El Greco, John Singer Sargent, Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir, Albert Bierstadt, Franz Kline and Ad Reinhardt, to name a few. Notable conservation projects include restoring one of Jasper Johns’ own American Flag paintings and The Spirit of ’76 by Archibald M. Willard for the town hall in Marblehead, Massachusetts.
