Botero Restoration

Since 1970, Polich Tallix has grown to be amongst the world’s largest and most respected full-service foundries. The intimate knowledge we have developed through the process of making sculpture enables us to provide expert restoration services including periodic cleaning, waxing, painting and re-patination; structural repair and component replacement. We strive to understand the original intent of the artist and we understand the best way to faithfully restore a work of art to its original condition. We serve museums, parks, corporations and municipalities, as well as private collections.
