Our Philosophy

At Lowy, the original intent of the artist is first and foremost. We are committed to the preservation of art using principles of minimal invasion employing the most advanced materials and techniques. All materials utilized offer long-term stability and are easily reversible and compatible with the original artwork.

Lowy is dedicated to innovation, problem solving and research. Our conservators remain informed of the latest developments in the field of fine art conservation, regularly attending seminars and conferences as well as performing independent research in related areas of conservation science, techniques and materials of individual artists. As members of the American Institute for Conservation and the International Institute for Conservation, Lowy remains associated with the finest technical resources, libraries and experts in the art world. We meet all of your conservation needs with museum-quality care.
