Information & Service
For our film, we took a look at the Liebieghaus conservation workshop and accompanied our conservators at their work.
In the collection presentation “Splendid White”, including works of art that remained in the private collection of the collector and patron Reiner Winkler until his death, the beauty, virtuosity, and richness of variation of baroque ivory carving can be experienced in an impressive way.
When it comes to conservation and restoration treatment, alabaster is one of the most sensitive types of stone. Harald Theiss, head conservator at the Liebieghaus, explains what challenges the delicate stone posed in the cleaning and conservation of the Rimini Altarpiece.
In choosing their profession, the Liebieghaus conservators Harald Theiss and Miguel González de Quevedo Ibáñez followed a calling, so to speak.
