FREE workshop - A Conservator's Perspective on Purchasing Works on Paper

Thursday, October 24, 2013 12:00 - 1:30PM
Cost: FREE!

Works on paper are often matted and framed, obscuring the edges and making the object itself somewhat inaccessible. This means it is even more important for the buyer to thoroughly investigate an object they are considering for purchase. What are your rights as a buyer when trying to gather more information? What are your options for assessing an object when you are purchasing from a remote seller? How might the information you gather affect your decision to purchase a print or drawing? What types of damage can you reasonably expect a conservator to be able to fix? This talk will answer the above questions with case studies and treatment examples along with advice on how to protect your collection. An open Q&A will follow.
