Preserving the value of fine art drawings

All works on paper must be preserved with the utmost care. Paper is a fragile medium and it is often used together with a technique that is even more fragile, such as pastel or charcoal.

Regardless of the technique used, works on paper must be preserved either in storage boxes if they are not on show or placed under glass if you are displaying them.

In the storage box, place a sheet of glassine paper between each drawing. Glassine is a thin and glossy paper that prevents friction. Always keep your works on paper away from moisture.
