Painting has the characteristics of "five fears" of fear of heat, light, humidity, mold and insect bite. To collect and protect celebrity calligraphy and paintings, we need to grasp the following common sense of calligraphy and painting collection:
1、 To dust. Before collecting celebrity calligraphy and painting, dust on the surface of celebrity calligraphy and painting needs to be dusted to prevent dust from being rolled into celebrity calligraphy and painting, as well as mildew, pollution and moth eaten in the shaft head. We should pay special attention to the celebrity calligraphy and painting on silk. If the dust falls in the silk seam, we must be patient to clean it, otherwise the service life of celebrity calligraphy and painting will be shortened in case of moisture. In addition, hidden in the dust are insect eggs that cannot be seen by the human eye. When the temperature and humidity are appropriate, they become adults and will eat celebrity calligraphy and paintings in the future. Therefore, celebrity calligraphy and painting should not be hung for several years, because the hanging process is a process of slow weathering, deterioration, fading and damage.
2、 Seal. Those who collect celebrity calligraphy and paintings need to be able to wrap celebrity calligraphy and paintings with kraft paper and put them into boxes or cabinets with good sealing performance. At the same time, put insect repellent products such as camphor blocks at the corners of the boxes to prevent moths. Then put in the clay paper with good water absorption performance, it can ensure the safety of celebrity calligraphy and painting and prolong the service life of celebrity calligraphy and painting.
Third, damp proof. In summer, the weather is humid. Collectors of celebrity calligraphy and painting should pay more attention to this. First, choose non humid walls to hang, and avoid places with water vapor indoors to prevent the usual moisture from attaching to celebrity calligraphy and paintings; Second, before the rainy season, the exposed celebrity calligraphy and paintings should be collected temporarily. After the rainy season, the sunny and dry weather should be selected in time, and the celebrity calligraphy and paintings should be unfolded or hung one by one, so as to disperse the moisture in the ventilation.
Fourth, avoid light. Because celebrity calligraphy and painting generally take paper and silk as the carrier, the ultraviolet in the sun will deteriorate the fibers of paper and silk, resulting in yellowing, fading and brittleness, resulting in damage to celebrity calligraphy and painting, so as to shorten the service life of celebrity calligraphy and painting. Therefore, celebrity calligraphy and paintings should be kept in a dark, cool, dry and clean place. CEN Shiying said that among his many celebrity calligraphy and paintings, such as Guan Shanyue, Chen Yongkang and ye Qiqing, all of them are well protected and cherished. He believes that handling the calligraphy and painting treasures in hand can not only bring a lot of wealth to the future calligraphy and painting collection career, but also contribute to the collection cause and cultural heritage of the motherland.
