Electronic Cataloging Project Entry #20


April 15, 2011

Apr15.jpgA couple of weeks ago I wrote about taking registration photographs of works hanging in the Museum--this undertaking continued into fine art storage recently. Elizabeth Williams-Clymer and I were not there only to take photographs (of the frame and signature and additionally the reverse and any back labels or inscriptions), but also to update the dimensions of the works. We used a soft plastic tape measure while wearing Nitrile gloves to carefully measure the dimensions of the frame, canvas size, and visible image.
