Works on paper

DEFINITION

A very broad term that embraces Old Master drawings to silkscreen prints by Andy Warhol to bits of decorated paper by children. The common denominator is paper. Criteria for inclusion are vague but include prints, watercolors, collages, drawings with pencil, charcoal and chalk, and pastel paintings. Professionals dealing with the preservation of Works on Paper have an understanding of the methods by which the paper was made, its expected lifespan, and processes that can be followed to extend that lifespan. Problems often result from overexposure to light and acidity from pollution and improper framing. Source: Arthur W. Schultz, General Editor, ???Caring For Your Collections???, Harry N.
