One section of conservation at the Freer│Sackler is dedicated to the museums’ paper-based materials. Examples include illustrated and illuminated manuscripts from Iran and the Arab world; ninth–nineteenth century Korans from Iran, Turkey, and the Arab world; opaque watercolor paintings from India; etchings, pastels, and watercolors by Whistler and other American artists; woodblock prints and watercolors from Japan and contemporary photography. The Paper & Photographs Conservation lab is also responsible for the care and treatment of documents and photographs in the archives.
