Artworks Maintenance

Artworks Maintenance is any maintenance activity performed on a work of art to stop or reverse a detioration in its condition.

If the creator of a work of art is available, they should typically be consulted prior to any maintenance work being attempted. (A maintenance technique appropriate to another class of asset may not be appropriate to a work of art - an outdoor metal sculpture for example may have been intended to rust by its creator.)

Where the artwork's creator has died or is un-contactable a professional conservator may be contacted for advice on how to treat a damaged or deteroirating work of art.
