Artworks and artefacts are very delicate and need special storage conditions and handling to maintain their quality. Many artworks in museums and galleries are decades old and wear and tear is bound to happen despite utmost care. In such cases, art restorers are employed to perform their functions and return the artworks and artefacts to their previous condition and grandeur as best as possible. Art restorers need excellent background in art history and must be extremely familiar with the technique of different artists. These art professionals must therefore possess a keen eye for detail and a steady hand for performing restoration efforts.
