We are often asked about backing and mounting paintings. There is some guidance on the traditional method here. There are a few places offering this service in UK & USA. However some of these send the painting to China for mounting, and may currently be unable to offer the service. Note also that there may be difficulties with international posting of items containing wood.
- Guanghwa (London) provides a Chinese painting mounting service; quotes are subject to sizes and materials. Mr Shou is a calligrapher who teaches there and mounts as well, and is still offering this service.
