What is Conservation Framing?

Sometimes its the unforeseen details that are almost always the most important..

Conservation framing aims to protect the longevity, while enhancing the beauty, of a piece of art. Specialist methods, materials and reversible techniques are designed to preserve artwork while ensuring that the artwork can be released, if necessary, from the framing with minimal material change.
