Art Restoration and Conservation





Restoration has been a Family Tradition since 1926 when Serge Liros' father Lucas Akliros started cleaning his own old master paintings. Later his wife helped him with the resoration by touching up damaged areas. Their son, Serge Liros, gained further restoration expertise at the Doerner Institute in Munich. Serge learned the intricacies of frame restoration including gilding, rebuilding damaged areas, replacing missing portions and toning from his uncle, Nicholas Akliros, in Berlin, Germany. Art conservation and repairing paintings and frames as well as archival conservation of art including paintings, frames, gold leafing, old print cleaning, is all part of the service provided by Liros Gallery.
