In Honor of Veterans Day
“There are few companies in America with the pedigree of the Oliver Brothers in Beverly, Massachusetts. For over 160 years, this company has been restoring some of the nation‘s most treasured works of art. James Oliver, the original founder of the firm, was trained and worked as an art restorer in Scotland. Some time before 1850nhe arrived in New York to build a trade that would yield the preeminent art restoration company in the United States. Moving to Boston after Civil War, this is the same firm that in 1906 restored Gilbert Stuart’s painting of General Washington that hangs in the Connecticut State Capitol. It is Oliver Brothers that just completed work on Canton’s monument to the Great War.”
