Concerns about preserving an artwork ideally start before a work is created or put on display: What degree of humidity can a studio or show room have? How will the exciting new plastic material behave once the color has dried out? With Caring For Your Art, those involved with the creation and distribution of art will be able to choose locations, creative material, supports, framing equipment and wrapping material without running into unpleasant surprises.

Step by step, readers will learn how to store and handle art properly, photograph art, insure and secure art, set up proper environmental controls, mat and frame safely, and utilize manual and computer systems for record keeping. This third edition also features all-new information on technological advances, materials, methods, and art forms, plus interviews with leading experts.
