A Dedicated Team

The prestige of an enterprise is not the result of a single person's work, it is the work of an entire team!!!

Annette Douay

Restorer of Paintings and Polychrome Art Objects. Expert D.U (Diplome Universitaire) in Authenticity in Heritage Materials
Manager of SARL Atelier du Temps Passé

Trained in Florence at the prestigious Istituto per l’Arte e il Restauro in the early 1980s, Annette Douay is constantly improving on traditional restoration techniques alongside more technical and scientific methods.

Mastering all techniques of restoration and conservation of paintings, her knowledge coupled with a close attention to detail is at the service of each entrusted work. Continuing to perfect her skills with national and international institutions, Annette graduated with the “Expert: Law and Authenticity of Works of Art” degree from University Paris II Assas-Panthéon. Annette puts all of her experience at the service of private clients (amateurs and collectors), as well as institutions (museums, historical monuments, ministries, foundations, etc.).

Her calling, turned profession, also includes the ability to teach her abilities with a sharpness and constantly renewed curiosity. Annette Douay sees herself as a link in the chain of heritage conservation-restoration, and is pleased to pass on her knowledge and expertise with fervour and modesty to a curious and formidable clientele.
