About

Annika Eriksson, Head of Conservation at John Jones, will offer her expertise on the care and conservation, mounting and framing of works on paper. The evening will begin with a look at the current exhibition of works on paper by Paul Sietsema. Offering the latest do's and don'ts of mounting, framing and caring for works on paper, Annika invites you to bring along a work on paper, or work in other media, that you would like some advice on. The evening is open to individuals interested in collecting, seasoned collectors and collection curators. Wine will be served. About Annika Eriksson John Jones recruited Annika to develop a new Conservation Studio which opened in February. The Conservation team has recently worked on diverse and intriguing artworks such as gold metallic Andy Warhol's from his ‘Love' series, Indian Miniatures, Hogarths, and a large Francis Bacon Triptych. Annika Erikson has worked with a wide variety of museums, collections and artists. At Tate, she worked in acquisitions as well as collection care and exhibitions across all Tate sites, with artworks ranging from British oil portraits on paper from the 1660's and work's by Turner and his followers to contemporary installations of paper-based sculptures from North America and Brazil. Mike Nelson's Coral Reef was a particular challenge that involved collaborating with sculpture conservators. At St Paul's Cathedral, Annika worked with the Architectural Prints and Drawings collection, and at the Royal Horticultural Society Annika worked with a fascinating collection of botanical watercolours, rare books, daguerreotypes, glass lantern slides, Victorian Christmas cards and Chinese Export paintings. While there she discovered a previously unknown original portrait-caricature of Charles Darwin on unusual blue coated paper in the collection.
