Research Your Art Collection

Resources for researching your art collection.


If you have an art object that you wish to have cleaned, repaired, or otherwise conserved, you will need to consult a professional art conservator. Bridwell Art Library does not have a conservator on staff and therefore is unable to provide art conservation. Below is a list of professional conservation organizations.

This list is not comprehensive nor an endorsement by Bridwell Art Library.
