ABOUT US

Everett Fine Art is a family business, founded in 1958. Three generations have restored and conserved paintings from across the centuries, of both national significance and private worth, often facing a wide range of conservation challenges.  Materials and techniques in this field have developed significantly and although embraced we continue to respect the many traditional methods that have served us so well.
