INVESTING IN ART
INSURING FINE ART

Keep art collections out of direct sunlight. Ultraviolet light will cause severe and often irreversible damage to art, especially paper, textitles and photographs. Turn off all lights and keep curtains or shades drawn when the room is not being used. In rooms containing many fine art items, consider installing UV filtering film on windows, and frame all artwork with UV plexiglass instead of glass (this will also make it possible to ship the artwork in the frame).
