The Studio was founded in 1989 by Adam Jaroszynski in Arlington, VA to serve the most discriminatory private art collectors and antique galleries in Washington D.C., Virginia and Maryland. Our restorers have been extensively trained in the best European art schools, mastering a variety of techniques handed down through the centuries. This has been supplemented by the adoption of the best of modern materials and approaches.
Using only the finest, museum-quality materials, methods and techniques, we preserve the character and integrity of the original masterpiece with superior attention to detail. The restoration process is non-intrusive and reversible.
Our studio has participated in the restoration of several notable historical Washington D.C. buildings. We have experience in managing different sized projects, ranging from small individual pieces to entire, large collections.
