Tips on Caring for Your Fine Art
- Always carry a framed piece by holding onto the sides with both
hands; never lift frame by the top.
- Transport framed pieces face up (preferably wrapped in bubble
wrap or a blanket). Lying face down puts stress on the paper hinges
and pastel works should not lie against the glass.
- Keep your art out of direct sunlight. The effect of light is
cumulative and will fade pigments over time.
not hang artwork in a bathroom -- it's too humid.
- When cleaning the glass on a framed piece, spray the cloth first,
then wipe. Do not spray glass as the cleaner could run down into
placement in your home should be relative to the furniture nearby.
A rule of thumb for wall pieces is that the center point of
the work should be 60-62" from the floor. Exceptions to
this rule should take into account the furniture height it is
placed above. Most art in homes is usually placed too high.
