Language: Original   -   Translation
Abstract: The theme of this thesis is the examination of the lacquerpicture "Tibet", created in 1983 by Sigmar Polke. After studies of the materials used, the application techniques and the intent of the artist, an effort was made to classify the state of the current condition of preservation. A distinction will be made between intentional phenomena and damages. As a result of prior practical attempts, a first recommendation for the conservation of the lacquerpicture will be offered.
