Video Title:
Art Frames Conservation
Description:
Frames conservators who work in this studio preserve and restore frames for display. All frames receive a technical examination before going on loan or on exhibit to assess surface condition, structural integrity and general appearance. The most common treatments include replicating missing decorative elements, and cleaning, gilding, and toning frame surfaces. Conservators in this studio are also responsible for constructing new frames when current frames are considered to be historically inaccurate or can no longer be used.
