About us

Redivivus means revived, returned to life, which is exactly what we strive for when restoring a painting. Redivivus stands for optimum conservation and restoration of paintings and painting collections. With more than twenty years experience, we have built up an in-depth and diverse expertise in quality conservation and restoration of paintings by Old Masters as well as modern artists.

Redivivus distinguishes itself from other restoration studios by its philosophy, which places the painting within its context. We not only base our advice and our working method on the technical condition of the work of art but also on its art-historical importance, its restoration history and its position within the collection. By considering each painting in context, we are able to provide the best informed intervention for its care.
Redivivus works for museums, municipal and governmental organizations and private collectors in the Netherlands and abroad.
Depending upon the wishes of the client and after a preliminary investigation, we formulate a restoration plan and estimate, so as to give the client insight into the treatment, the expenses and the time involved. Prior to any work a written estimate is given and agreed upon. Depending on the size and complexity of the assignment we work on an hourly rate or an all-inclusive price. Our rates are competitive.
