The author discussed the conservation of sixteenthcentury frescoes in the Councilors’ Chamber in the Town Hall in Świdnica. The scenes depicting the Last Judgment, the Crucifixion and Judgment o f the Harlot present a high artistic level dating from the end of of the Gothic period and the beginning of the Renaissance. The purpose of the conservation, conducted for the fourth time since the discovery of the painting (1960), was to eliminate the effects of the unsatisfactory condition of the building during the past several years. Conservators concentrated basically on aesthetic issues, associated with a special adaptation of the interior for the purposes of a showroom in the Museum of Old Trading, housed in the Świdnica Town Hall. Corrections of old, darkened and lightened retouching were followed by coloured reconstruction on large patches of plaster, which up to now deformed the legibility of the composition. The presentation of the painting - an imitation of stone tracery - whose fragments were earlier discovered on the southern wall, supplements the dominating Gothic nature of the whole composition.
