PAPER CONSERVATION

In 2004 a new Paper Conservation Studio opened at the Ashmolean. 

The studio is responsible for all works of art on paper and archives belonging to the Museum. Paper conservators carry out research on the collections as well as preparing the many pieces required for loans and temporary exhibitions.

As with all conservation disciplines, the ability to deal with preservation issues such as light damage, display, storage, handling and environments are paramount for paper conservators.
