More than 40 years of experience and 6 generations of know-how have made Erick Douwes an all-round restorer of paintings. His speciality is risky cleaning projects and difficult bedcloths. "It is always a surprise to see how paintings come to life authentically when dirt and yellowed varnish have been removed.

Together with colleague J. Kamphuis and freelance conservator K. Eij he forms a close-knit team at Douwes Restauratie that will carry out restorations for you with expertise and pleasure. "I may say that I have become a specialist. The thousands of paintings that have gone through my hands, the great variety in restorations that I have carried out over the years, have shaped me into the craftsman I am."

Erick is chairman of A.R.A. Nederland and closely involved in the establishment of the renewed Restoration Register in the Netherlands. He also has a studio in Harmelen, located between Utrecht and Woerden.
