The Muse defines art restoration as:

  • The act of restoring, renovating, renewal, revival, or reestablishment of a work of fine art.
  • A return of a work of fine art to a former, original, normal, or unimpaired condition
  • Restitution of a work of fine art that has been taken away or lost, or stolen, then recovered.
  • A work or works of fine art that are restored.
  • A reconstruction or reproduction of a work of fine art showing it in its original state.
  • Putting a work of fine art back into a former position or dignity.
  • Techniques and technology of restoration.

Here The Muse addresses the subject of restoration in all of the above senses.


about the period of the Restoration

Please do not confuse the restoration of fine art treated in this feature with the Restoration, the reestablishment of the monarchy in England with the return of Charles II in 1660, or with the reign of James II (1685–88). Of course, many restored pieces of fine art date from this period but then, many do not.

technical aspects of the fine arts

In their classical definition, the fields of fine art are primarily visual; they include painting, sculpture, drawing, watercolor, graphics, and architecture. Yet today there are more kinds of fine art than every before, many of which mitigate or completely dissolve barriers that in the past restricted the sensory appeal of fine art to the eyes at the expense of the other four senses.
