Getting the longest life out of your Fine Art
GUIDELINES FOR CARE OF FINE ARTDeterioration can be caused by inappropriate light, temperature or humidity levels, pollution and contaminants, mishandling, pests and mold. In addition, inappropriate repairs and cleaning methods can cause irreparable damage to photographic prints.
HANDLINGSpecial care shall be used when handling this artwork. Oils naturally present on the hands will damage the art. This canvas art is displayed without glass. Cotton gloves should be worn when handling the canvas. Never allow the canvas to lean against another object. Canvas will stretch, and leaning it against an object or allowing an object to rest on the canvas will cause irreparable damage.
HANGINGThis art should be hung using the provided Wall Buddy hangers. (Instruction sheet is attached)
ENVIRONMENTColor photographs are prone to damage from exposure to high and/or fluctuating temperature and relative humidity levels. High temperature and humidity levels combined with pollution and contaminants can cause fading of photographic images.
LIGHTPhotographs are prone to light damage in the form of fading. Color photographs should be displayed under low light levels (approximately 50 Lux.). Ultra violet, which is the most damaging form of light, should be eliminated by using ultra violet filters on lights designed for displaying art.
Low wattage halogen lighting is a good solution for lighting art.
