The Fine Art of Art Restoration: Causes and Remedies at Westport Historical Society

Join us at Westport Historical Society on Sunday, Nov. 4, from 3 to 4 pm to learn about art restoration.

Troy Fine Art Services, Inc. provides fine art services specializing in Art Restoration, Conservation and Art Installation to private individuals, and collectors as well as museums and corporations. Troy Amuso will take you on a descriptive and visual journey of the environmental and self-causing effects that can deteriorate a painting requiring it to need restoration. Through his presentation, you’ll learn some of the age old remedies and specific approaches a Master Conservator uses to return a painting to good health.

Before launching Troy Fine Art Services, Inc. in 1997, Troy began as a studio apprentice, under highly respected Dutch art conservator, Yan Vanderviver. Under Mr Vanderviver’s direction Troy honed his studio and restoration skills from a true master of the craft. He would eventually go on to become Mr. Vanderviver’s number one assistant in the preservation of master art works for private collectors, as well as some of the most prestigious art institutions in the country. Troy studied fine art at Pace University and the School of Visual Arts in New York, and went on to hold positions at high-level restoration studios, conservation framing studio’s and galleries in New York, Connecticut and Los Angeles.
