Paper Conservation

Paper conservation

The paper conservators work with the Prints and Drawings Curator to care for a collection of over 11,000 works on paper and miniatures in the Gallery to ensure their long-term safety and integrity. They also work with the Library and Archives Department to care for the variety of paper based items held in these collections. As they are responsibile for such fragile items, paper conservators undertake analytical studies and research on the materials and techniques that are found in works on paper.
