This is a fantastic paper for museum quality color and black and white photography. The tonal range is beautiful and the non-reflective surface makes for a stunning display of the work.
I'm a fan of matte papers, this is one of the best I've tried. Heavyweight, nice feel, fine smooth surface unlike Epson Velver Fine Art. It's an alternative to Epson Ultrasmooth Fine Art, which has an unfortunate way of chipping/flaking. Museo Portofio Rag hasn't flaked for me yet.
Museo Portfolio Rag is now my main paper for fine art B&W prints. It has a lovely smooth surface that virtually disappears, placing nothing between the viewer and the underlying image. The paper is slightly warm, and Dmax is excellent for a matte paper. Of all the matte papers that I have tested or used, MPR probably has the highest level of sharpness and detail. I print using an Epson 3880 and ImagePrint software, and I can honestly say that I am getting the best B&W prints of my life. Previously, I used a glossy paper, Canson Platine, but MPR looks much better to my eyes. The surface reflections from glossy papers subtract from whatever advantage they may have in Dmax and color gamut. I have not tried printing in color on MPR yet, so I cannot comment on its performance in that regard.
Closest paper I have found to fiber based silver. Makes excellent detailed prints.
