This unique varnish required a unique approach. See how this painting was cleaned using Nanorestore Gels, a new product specifically designed for the conservation of modern and contemporary artworks. youtube.com/watch?v=fsLmmk…
After careful examination, we learned that the varnish used here was likely a water-based polyurethane varnish, which is quite unusual for paintings. This type of varnish is usually something that's used to coat wood.
Kirchner is well known for dry, matte surfaces, but this painting was very glossy and flat, which often happens when varnishes degrade and turn yellow over time. We decided to treat it in preparation for its reinstallation in the new modern art galleries.
Today, we're stepping behind the scenes into Paintings Conservation to see how a 1912 painting by by Ernst Ludwig Kirchner is cleaned and prepared for exhibition.
Don't be blue 💙 This weekend, learn how to make your own cyanotype, or sun print, and create your own artworks using objects from nature and the sun's energy. Sat. Oct. 2, 10:30 am - 12 pm Earvin "Magic" Johnson Park Learn more:bit.ly/39LF8qwPP
