Ink and watercolour drawing on brittle transparent paper

These 20th century architect’s drawings had significant losses and tears. Transparent papers typically become brittle and difficult to handle as they age.  I have built up my knowledge of these papers over several years out of personal as well as professional interest. For me, they are always exciting to conserve.

Treatment
