Language: Original   -   Translation
Abstract: Abstract
The topic of this thesis is the permanent flattening of four warped panels with a black coating out of a Japanese folding-screen. 
The comparison of methods used by other Conservators leaded to the decision of undertaking a flattening through vaporous water. The presence of four similar panels enabled a comparison of two different methods, which is why a flattening through the rise of the humidity and with the help of a steam-penetrating membrane was accomplished. 
Afterwards a stabilization had to be developed for preserving the flattened state of the panels. In this case, the challenge was to find a stabilization that could be integrated into the frame of the folding-screen.
