She is available for the examination and evaluation of works at auction houses and galleries as well. The pride she takes in her work, which is executed meticulously and sensitively, has gained her an extensive reputation within the art community.
Ms. Signorelli has an impressive background. Trained in Florence, Italy by both institutional and private conservators, the study of her craft was well founded. She worked under the director of the Uffizi Gallery, Luisa Becherucci and with Ugo Procacci, the Soprintendente alle Belle Arti di Firenze. She also studied with the Restorer-in- Residence at the Uffizi, Augusto Vermehren, and also with Gaetano LoVullo, a well-respected private conservator. When returning to New York she apprenticed further with the renowned expert, Renzo Baldaccini, eventually establishing her own business on the Upper East Side, in one of the City's most distinguished art districts. She continues to stay current in the latest technical developments in the field, yet retains all that is valued in the traditional style of conservation.
The Signorelli Studio fosters a confident and confidential working relationship with clients. Ms. Signorelli thoroughly explains the work she is proposing to be carried out in a personal and discreet manner. Written estimates of costs are furnished and a time frame is established before any work commences.
