Richard is so knowledgeable and helpful. He did a fantastic job on our precious gicleé from America. He advised us on what we should have yet still took note of our requests. The environment is so welcoming where you can sit on the sofa and discuss your requirements. Could not be more pleased with the finished product, service and how quickly the job was done. Rarely have I experienced such good service and workmanship. You’re awesome Richard. Thank you. Maggie and Kevin

Absolutely wonderful restoration of a much loved family artwork. Elaine is a master at her craft. The original frame and all the details of the work have been brought back to life in a way we didn't think was possible. Service and communication was exceptional throughout. Thank you.

A truly masterful restoration of a much loved family heirloom. Our 19th century lithograph was in a very sorry state and had become stained and foxed, with the picture no longer clearly visible and we doubted that it could ever be restored. How wrong we were! Through Richard and Elaine’s great skill, patience and hard work the picture has been restored to a standard I never thought possible and is now in a condition that it can be enjoyed by us and will be enjoyed by future generations for many years. Thank you.

On acquiring a painting which needed restoration work and cleaning we decided to get in touch with Richard Martin Gallery & Picture Framing in Gosport. On collecting the painting we were delighted with the results - such a transformation. A lovely Gallery with such a helpful family and thank you again.

Our 150 year old framed lithograph (family heirloom) wire hanger recently broke and the picture crashed to the floor damaging the frame and breaking the glass. Given the sentimental value of the picture we researched who might best to repair it and found Richard Martin Gallery. Richard has carried out a superb repair/restoration and it has never looked better whilst in our ownership. His care, attention and skill are first class and we are delighted with what he has achieved.

Over the last few years we have used the Richard Martin Gallery for frame restoration, picture cleaning and framing. The numerous projects we have given to the Gallery have all been completed to an extremely high standard, with the added benefit of a professional dialogue with Richard Martin himself, and the Gallery team (all family members), to arrive at the right outcome for the project you you have in mind.As an example, we recently bought (2020) an Ivon Hitchens oil painting at auction. Whilst the painting was in its original frame, the frame itself it was badly damaged (flaking and discoloured paint, missing inlays etc.), and the canvas required cleaning as it had darkened and become jaded over the years. We felt the frame, despite its poor condition, was integral to its identity and we wanted to keep it. The team at the Gallery restored the frame brilliantly. The painting was also cleaned and as result of this work the painting has a new vitality. Without any doubt the Gallery’s work enhanced the purchase we had made at auction.If you have any picture or frame requiring restoration you will find it difficult to match the quality of work carried out at the Richard Martin Gallery. The framing work of the Gallery is also of an excellent quality, and you will (again) benefit from the thoughtful discussion that always takes place about the right frame for your picture.You will not be disappointed by any of the services provided by the Richard Martin Gallery. Having undertaken numerous jobs for us I can recommend the Gallery without any hesitation.

Excellent service from a friendly family business. Richard and his team renovated a old Victoria Sheep Painting which had originally been commissioned by my family. It was in poor condition but after Richards masterful touches the picture has taken on a new lease of life. We are absolutely delighted. Lovely people to work with as well.

I would like to thank Richard and his team for cleaning, restoring and framing four watercolours. They were brought at auction dirty, and looking very sorry but underneath you could see their beauty. Richard has cleaned and framed all four and they are stunning. Attached are before and after pictures of just one. I am really pleased at how they have turned out and well worth the time and cost. Richard is extremely knowledgeable and has spurned on my interest to find more treasures. Thank you and I look forward to seeing the next transformation.

Richard and Elaine have just restored five watercolour paintings for us. We are delighted with the results, the colours have come to life once more. It’s easy to forget, or not even to know, how good paintings can look, especially with such sympathetic restoration. And by such sympathetic people. Highly recommended.

Our oil painting was flaking and dirty. Richard did an excellent job in cleaning it and glueing down every prone flake. His expertise was most professional and is appreciated.

The Richard Martin Gallery have thoroughly impressed me with their expertise and knowledge. I took a very battered oil painting to them for appraisal to see if it was worth restoring. The painting, which had been in my family for many decades, was from an oak fireplace surround and had suffered over the centuries from smoke and heat damage. Some of the paint was blistered, some had flaked off and the painting was discoloured brown which really obscured any fine detail of the painting. More recent damage included some knife and dart damage! Richard decided that the painting was just about restorable, given a fair wind.To see the finished result is just remarkable. From such unpromising material, Richard, Elaine and team have transformed the picture into a delightful Italianate evening scene. The painting is now stabilised and secure, the subject matter well-defined without being over-restored. It is an absolute joy to behold.A big ‘thank you’ to all at the Richard Martin Gallery.

We recently had a figurine mounted and framed by Richard and the team. We love it! Richard helped me choose the mount and frame and made extremely helpful suggestions throughout. Moreover, Richard is so friendly and polite - it is a joy to visit.I cannot recommend the Gallery more highly!

Richard and Elaine recently restored three pictures for us, two of which date from the mid 1800s. They have done the most wonderful job and were even able to restore the original frames. An oil painting affected by craquelure has been miraculously renovated. In addition, a watercolour which was browned and affected by foxing has been revived with treatment which has brought out the beautiful colours and has enabled us to discern details that were previously hidden. Richard suggested a more appropriate frame and mounting which is very pleasing. We have no hesitation in recommending the gallery for its expertise. Thank you very much for your great service.

I was very pleased indeed with the quality of the work done on two old family portraits. The standard of restoration was sympathetic, professional and a good deal of care was taken. In addition I had a French antique mirror re-guilded which was also done extremely well. Cannot recommend them highly enough and they have a super shopfront in Gosport.

We have recently had a marine watercolour restored. It was quite extensively foxed and we were concerned that we might have seen the best of it. Elaine has worked her magic. We are surprised and delighted with the result. We took the opportunity to have the original glass replaced with a non-reflective UV resistant glass and this has further enhanced the picture.. What a professional outfit !

I cannot praise the gallery highly enough for the work carried out in restoring my two Victorian portraits. The paintings were quite transformed following some skilful repair and cleaning work together with beautiful new frames. I would like to thank the gallery for such an exemplary and professional service which I would highly recommend.

This was a difficult and valuable picture to clean, and Richard and his team were excellent. Friendly from the start, and keen to explore options and explain what would be done. Several additional areas of restoration, and framing, and it looks wonderful - not just us but others say so. Very many thanks, highly recommended.

Richard Martin Gallery have recently renovated an heirloom that got damaged in an accident. It is a early 19th century painting and after landing heavily on a stone floor was left with some very visible ripple marks in the paint work that ruined the painting.It has recently been returned and I am amazed at the work they have done. Not only is there no evidence of the damage but they have resurrected a beautiful old burr maple frame that had seen better days. The corners were re-mitred, parts of the frame were replaced and it was cleaned and polished. An amazing job.Their manner throughout has been highly efficient, helpful and human. A rare combination. I would highly recommend them.
