The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Art

The Lichtenstein Room Museum by Brian Nash Painting, Acrylic on Canvas 36.0 inch x 72.0 inch $3,500

Life is a highway, and we want to ride it all night long. But what kind of cargo are we carrying? What if that baggage is worth millions of dollars? Welcome to the world of art transporters, or the men and women who move valuable pieces of art from point A to point B.

There is a lot to consider when shipping and moving artwork. Whether it’s bringing the piece to a buyer or working on the backend for a traveling exhibit, art transporters have a very mindful profession.

Before they even hit the road, they will dutifully document every detail of the work using high-resolution photographs, just to be sure nothing has been altered or changed along the journey. Furthermore, this examination also allows art experts to evaluate whether or not the piece is even fit to travel at all.

Okay, so now we have documented our paintings, and are all saddled up and ready to go. Let’s hit the road! Alright, well not quite. It’s not as easy as throwing the painting in the back and turning on “Highway to Hell.” There are many other risk factors to consider when moving priceless objects.

According to the Conservation Register, the biggest risks to works of art are breakage, tears, loose and missing elements, impacts and smudges. That doesn’t even cover human mistakes like fingerprints, makeup residue or cigarette smoke. Sometimes, something as small as damp air or too much light can damage a work of art beyond repair.

Of course, these dangers don’t always apply to works of art created recently, but after hundreds or maybe thousands of years, these precautions need to be taken.

We put a lot of effort into preserving the art we love. At Zatista, we may not be driving trucks toward museums, but we are just a diligent with all of the original art we have on our website. From colorful abstracts to jarring realism, there is something always something unique and perfect out there, just for you.
