RSM Art Conservation is the oldest private conservation service provider in Australia, having been founded in Sydney (New South Wales) in 1971. At that time, the company consisted of two full time staff members, working on the conservation of a variety of objects and a range of projects. RSM Art Conservation relocated to Queensland in 1986, establishing dedicated conservation studios in Mapleton (on the Queensland Sunshine Coast) and in the Brisbane metropolitan area.
The company has continued treating a wide range of artworks and has successfully undertaken a number of large architectural projects (Refer to Part 9 for detailed examples). In addition to the two original owners, RSM now employs two full time staff members and four contractors. Full time staff members and contractors have dedicated areas of specialisation in; conservation framing, gilding, paintings conservation, object and textile conservation, paper conservation, and architectural conservation.
