    The Care and Handling of Art Objects: Practices in The Metropolitan Museum of Art






    You might want to download this publication free at the link below.
    Every museum I have worked in has owned and utilized a copy of this publication. Over time it has been used as a basis to help kraft many other written guidelines and policies. As a professional Art handler the I will say there is one or two notable bloopers on the reality front, but it is still a classic and the illustrations are a hoot too. I
    t should definitely be part of your personal/professional library.

    Drawing on the professional experience of curators and conservators from many different departments, The Care and Handling of Art Objects has been put together primarily for those who work in the Metropolitan Museum. What it has to say, however, will be of great interest to others—private collectors large and small, museum visitors, and concerned members of the public.

    Does anyone know where to buy this book?
    To want to, is to be able to.
