Protecting the Reverse Side

In addition to climatic effects, the movement of the canvas support (even with enough tension) can cause damage within the paint.

Even if a painting is stretched sufficiently, there is still movement,
therefore it is very important to protect the painting from behind.

A fleece placed within the stretcher, plus the addition of a backboard, protects the painting from

  • mechanical stresses
  • vibrations
  • heat and cold
  • dust and dirt

All materials are conservation grade
