Intervention is sometimes necessary to preserve the longterm health of artworks. Goodman LaFon is equipped to handle minor treatments, major treatments, and everything in between.

Goodman LaFon specializes in tackling complicated inpainting challenges. Inpainting is the process of adding color where no original paint is left.

Discovering more about your artwork can be crucial for informing treatment, scholarship, or even just to satisfy your curiosity. Goodman LaFon can delve deep for new information using a variety of techniques.

Goodman LaFon has the ability to image artworks in normal light, ultraviolet, and infrared, all of which are used to examine more than we can see with the naked eye.

Proper handling and overall care of artworks helps prevent the need for future treatment.

Surveying one artwork or a whole collection can help you keep track of your inventory and determine potential storage or treatment needs. Goodman LaFon can even create detailed schematics  for complicated artworks.

Digital simulations help translate scientific and historical data into something more legible. It is important to see them as informed hypotheses—not fact.

Goodman LaFon used information collected by the National Gallery of Art, Washington DC to show drastic compositional changes under the surface of Feast of the Gods by Giovanni Bellini.
