In 1989 Newmans, Ltd began with our first specialty, metal objects, and rapidly expanded to Non-Western ethnographic objects of mixed materials and to marble and stone busts and other statuary. Our projects range from small, delicate bronze statuary and unusual metal objects to large institutional installations.
Balancing Intervention with Judgement
We develop our plan for an artwork’s restoration in collaboration with the work’s owner, by discussing – in clear terms – the work’s historical context, the maker’s original intent, the piece’s present condition, and the pros and cons of our work options. Then we make a proposal with a fixed price for the work we’ve agreed upon with the option of photographic and text documentation of various levels.
