Removing a painting from its frame: NM95-57/10-12-2016E-PDF

"Removing a painting from its frame can be a relatively easy procedure, provided that the initial framing job meets accepted guidelines (see CCI Note 10/8 Framing a Painting). Unfortunately, many paintings are improperly secured in their frames (e.g. nails are frequently driven at an angle through the stretcher into the frame). Such framing methods make it difficult to remove the painting. Special care is required"--Introd., p. 3.
