Through the magnifying glass

This exhibition is the first to give an overview of the most important restoration works and technological investigations in the field of art during the past 25 years. The areas covered range from the complete removal of the coatings of a wood sculpture to conservational methods and touch-free optical examination. What these measures reveal are the older conditions of the works as well as new insights into their genesis and the determination of their age.
