Olendorf Watercolor Harvard Building

Chemical bath for watercolor by Olendorf (1924 – 1996). The blue residue is actually from another watercolor which transferred during a flood. Problematic tape is along the left side which contains non-archival compounds that are problematic on their own, and worse when water spreads them. There is also green paint in a corner, which came from the front of the work.
