A Life Dedicated to Art Conservation


The conservation of invaluable works of art is an enormous responsibility requiring a high level of skill and experience. In Paul Schwartzbaum's career he has been in charge of conservation for both the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museums and ICCROM, the International Center of Conservation in Rome.  Paul has demonstrated the experience, practical ability and eye, as well as the understanding of works of art, required for conservation projects at any level.


Having worked for some of the most prestigious institutions in the world, Paul has been entrusted with many of the most difficult and important conservation projects in modern times.
