ArtDiscovery’s condition reports, also called Condition Report+ or Technical Condition Report, are extremely detailed and can help you with both Old Masters and contemporary pieces. While a traditional condition report will look at stability and condition by means of simple visual assessment, our Condition Report+ add the benefits of material analysis, which can identify original materials and characterize restoration enabling works of art to be exhibited and conserved in the most efficacious manner.
For Old Masters, we are able to date past interventions and look at the extent of restoration or damages to a structure. With material analysis and technical imaging, we add crucial information about the treatment history of the object, susceptibility to light, and other important factors.
For Modern and Contemporary pieces that are especially prone to condition issues, we can provide essential information about the materials used in works of art to allow for your valuable investments to be transported, stored, and displayed while minimizing risk. This information can also help develop long-term preservation programs, designed specifically for the material needs of your artwork.
