Poor paper wanting to restore

I believe this is related at least the right people for the question: I have an old picture under glass in a frame. Several years ago, I opened it and touched the paper picture and it just dissolved or crumbled to invisible pieces. MY question: Is there a way/method to restore or firm up this old picture. I can at least get to it from the back but it looks or seems like I need to first spray something on to it to firm it up but I really have no idea; would appreciate your help as I would like to keep this picture.

The picture might only be ..... I'm not sure, it's got some years on it. Its a religious type of picture so, I don't know if it origianlly came out of magazine or if it was first painted then photographed or what.

It's about 8 x 10 I think it had some color to it but maybe just black and white. I have it packed away right now. Thank you for your time, I very much appreciate it.
