ART HAVING HARD TIME
You are correct on all but 2. Acid neutral and chemically stable are desirable for "archival material." I'm not sure about people not wanting to seem famous paintings behind glass, so I can't advise on that question. It is usually better to be able to see the...

Well, I disagree on both. I think if the provenance of the brooch can be traced to Clay's family, that would add to it's value quite a lot. And the second question depends on what culture is being preserved. If the drawing is contemporary to the ancient festival, that ...

Actually, I don't like any of the choices here, but I don't think artists always agreed with their governments. And public opinion did not always support government policies, either. But to openly defy or criticize might mean a ban on selling the artist's work, ...

No, I don't think so. Artists often are not to worried about negative public reaction as they create. Remember that 19th century governments were usually very strong, authoritarian, often monarchies, and openly criticizing them might have unwanted effects.

By the 19th century wealthy patronage was less common than in earlier eras. Think again, or go to your class materials.

Yes, I think so. The speaker is not grasping something intangible like an idea, but something more tangible, so that is the clue.
