The Atelier de Ricou, founded in 1989, specialises in the creation and restoration of painted decors painted primarily on parietal media, but also works of art or furniture.

Its extensive knowledge of decorative tradition and the handling of old or complex techniques of painting, gilding and volumes, allow it to contribute across many fields of application, including work for Monuments Historiques.

The workshop is based in Paris and has been bringing together complementary branches of specialists on sites throughout France and abroad for 25 years.

S Its core expertise lies in:


- - Preliminary studies of painted decorations: production of stratigraphy and surveys, analysis of the techniques used, diagnosis of health status, dating, critical authenticity, formulation of restoration protocols, estimation of work, writing summary reports.

- Advice on problems and maintenance of old housing, support and timely interventions.

- Restaurant decors on many media: murals, wood panelling and canvas, polychrome and gilding.

- Creation of additional features integrating existing components: project work alongside project management, creation of models and samples and the execution of large decors, including preparation.

- Design of original materials assigned to a single project
