Alexander Katlan Conservator Inc. Tel: 718 445-7458. The Art Conservation Laboratory. In 2012, the company will celebrate its 33th Anniversary while doing fine conservation work for over 36 years. His research and conservation work of paintings over these years have emphasized preserving the historical context of the painting, preserving the labels, marks and original stretchers, as well as the original intent of the artist in creating the painting. In many cases, mechanical damages and old restoration has altered the painting structurally and visually resulting in extensive disfigurements. Conservation treatments are concerned with stabilizing and preserving the artwork, making the paintings readable and viewable while often reflecting the age and history of the painting. Cracking is consolidated and repaired, tears are mended and aligned and if necessary the tacking edges and canvases are re-enforced or fully lined.
