Matting, Framing, and Glazing
Forgive me if this is answered elsewhere, but I'm looking for the best practices on labeling the back side of a painting on canvas on strainers. I'd like to include a professional description of the date, materials, and name/authentication of the work, etc. I've mostly only seen artists doing this in the past on panel by attaching a label, as in J. ALbers, but have heard adhering anything to the back of the piece will eventually disrupt the front tension- similar concerns about writing directly on the piece, and furthermore only labeling the stretchers seems to miss the mark. Perhaps on a dust cover, but this seems impractical on a larger piece... Any industry standards?
