Bruce Knackert manages Lynden's indoor collection of paintings, small sculpture, and works on paper. In the Conservation Framing series, he demonstrates framing practices and pitfalls for works on paper to help you speak knowledgeably to framers and preserve your own collection. In this session, Knackert talks about the five factors harmful to artwork on paper (light, acid, relative humidity, temperature, pests) and expands on the techniques and materials used to counteract these factors using examples from the Lynden collection.
