Repairing the past

  • • Maite believes that good restoration is like good health
  • • She has been painting since she was a child
  • • She is good at dealing with the challenges of her craft

Maite Béjar's deep knowledge of art, history and chemistry, together with commitment, drive and an open mind, have enabled her to become a restorer, to preserve, care and bring to life once again a piece of art. From her Sevilla workshop, opened in 2006 she restores easel paintings on canvas and wood. She carried out her studies in Spain and Italy, and has worked on several important projects in both countries at cultural sites, including Florence’s Galleria degli Uffizi and Museo del Bargello, and Plaza de España in Sevilla. Her mission is to repair the past, cleaning the pieces and bringing back the original colour and splendour, respecting the historic integrity of the piece and its composition.
