Studio restoration: Curtain up for Magdalene Besserer

Restoration of a portrait from the year 1630


On the occasion of the European Restoration Day on 14 October 2018, the Museum Ulm is opening the newly established studio exhibition Restoration. Current restoration projects will be presented in changing presentations. The exhibition series starts with the portrait of the Ulm artist Magdalene Besserer, née Kiechel, ascribed to Andreas Schuch. In 2015 it was restored by the restoration student Christiane Kritzer as a student project.

The exhibition uses the oil painting from 1630 to illustrate individual conservation and restoration measures and juxtaposes the work of art with an unrestored portrait of the time. The destroyed green curtain in the portrait of Magdalene Besserer was reconstructed with copper green (verdigris). A student experiment documents how this historical pigment is produced.

The exhibition is curated by Evamaria Popp, restorer (Museum Ulm).
