Hilsen styret i faggruppa v/ leder Annette Lykknes
Irin Sandu, conservation scientist at MUNCH, is going to present the scientific research in the conservation sections since 2016, when she arrived at the museum. The original artist materials collection and also the collection of paintings have received a particular attention over the years, through scientific and multidisciplinary studies. The projects that have been developed, some of them with external funding (form EU or other international bodies), focused on the study of materials and techniques, the phenomena of degradation and deterioration of paint materials and testing and validating new solutions for active/curative conservation. She will present several case studies among those investigated with chemical-physical methods and tools (microscopy, spectroscopy, chromatography, diffraction etc.).
Harmut Kutzke, førsteamanuensis ved Kulturhistorisk museum
History of chemistry – and of chemical technology in particular – provides essential background information for studying technical aspects of our cultural heritage and for developing suitable preservation strategies. The Munch Museum houses ca 1000 colour tubes, palettes and other artistic materials from Edvard Munch’s possession. Samples from selected tubes and palettes have been analysed and the results were linked to contemporary technical literature and journal articles. The presentation will demonstrate the importance of combining analytical lab work with studies of historical sources in order to deepen our knowledge of artistic materials from the 19th/early 20th century, and how this knowledge helps to address questions of dating and origin of the materials.
