You may be losing just because you don't know how reasonable our Restoration Services are. We are a local company with roots in Houston since 1946 and we would like to offer our restoration services to those of you who may have paintings and other pieces of art that have suffered the damages that time and abuse have caused.

A phone call or e-mail is all you have to invest to determine whether or not "Grandmas Favorite" (watercolor, oil, pastel, acrylic, photograph, or other fine art media), which has been in the attic for years is worth saving and bringing back to life. Originals are becoming more & more sought-after the more technological our society becomes.

The conservation techniques he uses, wax infusion, were developed in Europe early in this century and have been accepted worldwide as the safest and most effective technique for oil painting previously exposed to excess moisture and/or heat.

As a conservationist, Mr. Dickerman has restored paintings ranging in value from sentimental family paintings, to heirlooms and million dollar estate pieces. He was commissioned to clean and restore the large (12' x 52') America by Rufino Tamayo, hanging in The Bank of the Southwest. This painting was later auctioned by Southeby's for more than $2,000,000.00

Mr. Dickerman has full respect for the original artist's paint film and will preserve and avoid "over painting" as much as is possible. His years of discriminating rendition of his portrait commissions has enabled him to restore treasures once considered lost completely. He specializes in severely damaged portraits (see "Wine Maiden").
