Susanne Harbach: Conservation and Restoration of a Cloth with "Roghan Painting" from the Near East - Development of a concept for the preservation of glued layers of painting Back
Language: Original   -   Translation
Abstract: This Master´s thesis focuses on the conservation
concept of a cloth from the Near East that can no
longer be unfolded due to "glued" layers of
painting. The special nature of this textile is
reflected in the so-called Roghan painting, a
decorative technique in which thickened oil is
artistically applied to textiles. Cultural-historical
connections are shown in detail. In various test
series, suitable methods of moistening with
solvents will be investigated in order to finally
make the glued layers of painting flexible in a
moisture chamber system and to detach them
from each other. The work also includes research
into the composition of the materials and the
causes of their condition, which are illustrated
using the artist's own sample materials.
