For over seven years, I have highly recommended Solomon Cohen to my clients for all their restoration and appraisal needs. He has restored not only oil and paper art but also ornate antique frames.

Mr. Cohen exhibits great technical skill, professionalism, and impeccable manners. He has been a great asset to the services I can provide in my art sales and framing business. His work has enhanced my professional reputation in the La Jolla art community.

Please feel free to contact me for any additional information you might need.
