TREATMENT AND MOUNTING OF A POSTER ANGLETERRE BY A.M. CASSANDRE

Antoinette Owen


ABSTRACT—This article describes the examination, treatment and mounting for exhibition of an oversize work of art on paper. The unusual dimensions and the nature of the medium of this lithograph created certain logistical problems in treatment. Rather simple procedures such as water washing, wet handling, flattening and mounting were complicated by the dimensions of the object. The use of enzymes to facilitate a backing removal and the application of a new backing required revising known approaches and techniques.
