Stavros Mihalarias’s conservation studio was created in Athens at the beginning of the 80’s as part of his well known studio in London.Both studios have had working associations with important foundations, museums and private collections such as the British Museum, the Tate and National Galleries, the Victotia & Albert Museum, the National Maritime Museum, the National Maritime Museum, the National Bank of Greece, the Athens University, the Vorres and Pierides Museums and others.
The studio is now located in the Art City (Malakasa) and employs specialised personnel with academic qualifications and long term experience. The studio uses the most advanced scientific equipment, electronic means, microstereoscopes, vacuum tables and X-ray equipment for the restoration and authentication of works of art.
The studio restores paintings, icons, mosaic, frescoes, and with external collaboration the restoration of antiquities. It can also handle the annual restoration and supervision of whole collections, by examining regularly the works of art and providing suggestions and written reports on their condition.
