With proper care, paintings can hold beauty for years

Part 2 of 3 – Paintings are perhaps the most common type of artwork. In addition to their obvious aesthetic value, many are culturally significant because of historical or sentimental value.

Restoration and conservation treatment may be able to restore paintings to beauty.
