Conservation

Key responsibilities of the museum’s in-house conservation department are the conservation, restoration and general care of the extensive inventory, as well as taking care of works on loan for temporary exhibitions.

To make sure the works stored and presented at the museum remain in good condition, measures of pre-emptive conservation are employed: monitoring of the indoor climate, securing of objects and optimising the presentation of objects in adequate framing and display systems. An important research contribution are the detailed visual inspections regarding material selection, techniques of painting and polychromy, as conducted by the restorers in close cooperation with the curators.
