I spend a great deal of time and effort presenting pictures. Not only is each object thoroughly researched with extensive consultation with the relevant experts in the field on issues such as artist, subject matter and provenance but importance is also given to the conservation of the picture and long-term display of an object. Each work is conserved but only where necessary. The works are mounted on museum board, which are individually hand painted to complement the drawing or watercolour and the frame. All conservation work is done to the highest standard and a copy of the work is available the buyer. Finally the drawings are framed in a bespoke manner, each frame is individually chosen for each work, making for an individual object in every way.
