Art trade Zöchmann in 2nd generation
After my father has worked successfully for more than 60 years in the art industry as a restorer, art dealer and collector, it is now a special concern to me to continue this vocation in his sense.
Already in childhood my father was able to awaken my enthusiasm for the "fine art". At the age of 13 I began to study the restoration of sculptures and paintings in my father's atelier, a master of his field. Soon I was able to restore sculptures for collectors, art dealers and museums, some of them were of museum quality. I got to know the carvings of famous sculptors like Jakob Kaschauer, David and Michael Zürn, the Schwanthaler family and many others. I was mainly given the task to free the original paintings of the objects from the often complex overpaints and to uncover them.
A separate science was also the cleaning, regeneration and preservation of oil paintings. I was also very interested in the gilding of art objects of different materials.
The success of the "Art trade Zöchmann", a success story in decades, is based on a good, balanced and loyal collaboration between collectors, dealers and auction houses. After this success recipe I work today and confess to it.
