Fine Art Asset Management and Support
Maintaining the story, provenance, and integrity of an item requires a sensitive approach to ensure things are not over-cleaned or made to look 'new'. Maintaining the authenticity of an item is the main concern of a qualified and ethical conservator.

If you have a collection and you need advice and support, we are here to help. We also run regular workshops on art management as well as workshops on professional development to help you care for your own collections.
Endangered Heritage has a fully equipped laboratory and provides conservation services for our national collection in galleries, museums, libraries, and universities. We will uphold the same standard of quality to your project as we do to the national collection. Each of our conservators has extensive experience and training in several fields of specialisation and frequently run teaching programs.
Endangered Heritage does not outsource work without the knowledge of the client. The owner is always in direct contact with the conservator undertaking the work.
