PROBLEMS INVOLVED IN CONSERVATION OF WORKS OF NEOPLASTIC ART
In Museum of Arts, Łódź there are two rooms the walls of which iare covered with the painted decorative motifs designed by an outstanding representative of the Polish neoplastic art Władysław Strzemiński and his disciple Bolesław Utkin. In the same rooms are displayed the paintings, sculptures and pieces of furniture supplying an illustration of the aforementioned trend in art. The preservation of painted decorative motifs on walls presents, however, a great deal of difficulties as they represent quite an unusual problem within the scope of the conservator’s usual practice. Since the preservation of perfectly smooth and uniformly shaded surfaces in particular parts of decoration Is an absolute must, the author suggests that in places where it might prove necessary to recover the losses no stippling should be applied ; instead of this the entire surfaces should be covered with colour matching as much as possible that of original work.
