Hello,



I have a painting which is need of some care. I think it is about 70 years old, a friend who paints has told me it is an oil painting (I wouldn't know).


I have attached a picture where you can see the paint is coming off the canvas at the bottom along the frame. I am not too concerned about repairing the painting, I am looking for a way to prevent the painting deteriorating further. It is of great sentimental value.



Any suggestions greatly appreciated.



Thanks
