Conservation of a pencil drawing of a sleeping child
Conservation of a pencil drawing of a sleeping child
 

The drawing, which was damp from water ingress when brought to the Studio, was first dried, and then the superficial and recent mould growth cleaned off with a latex sponge.

The paper was separated from the acidic card backing, and then washed to reduce discolouration and acidity.  This was followed by bleaching with a light bleaching lamp. The work was pressed,  mounted and reframed before being returned to the client.
