At CAEM we offer services of research, assessment, evaluation, consultation, conservation, restoration and the authentication and certification of artworks. We provide detailed reports and expert analyses, which establish, with the greatest accuracy possible, the style, the technique, the historical significance, the chronology, the state of conservation, the authorship, and of course, the cultural, economic and heritage value of the works analysed by this research.
WE ARE AN OPEN, PUBLIC CENTRE AT THE SERVICE OF INDIVIDUALS
Our speciality involves aiding individuals, families and collectors who confide in our university centre with a detailed, respectful service. We carry out our work with clarity, honesty, confidentiality, rigour and ethical professionalism. We are a public centre.
