"Six valuable Lowry paintings, which have rarely been
seen in public have been restored to their original glory
by a restorer whose painstaking attention to detail
is winning him commissions....... Mr Zahler has had to
use all his ingenuity and skill to restore the works,
some of which had suffered badly over the years.......
The paintings... are among 22 Lowry's on display at
the Tullie House Museum, City of Carlisle, Cumbria."
"Mr Zahler....... is used to devising his own system of
doing things. He restores all type of paintings, maps,
drawings and almost any work of fine art. He has even
restored Japanese works of art composed on delicate
Extracts from: Yorkshire Life (March '92) and Lancashire Life (May '92)
