Visit: open access conservation of Rueland Frueauf the Elder at the Obere Belvedere

Registration open until November 25th, 2013,

In spring 2013 elaborate examinations and conservation works started on 8 paintings by Rueland Fruehauf the Elder (1449/45 – 1507). Conservation is undertaken in a specifically designed gallery at the Obere Belvedere. Museum visitors have the opportunity to meet conservators and watch the work’s progress.
The paintings are part of an altar-ensemble, presumably created by the artist for the cathedral or parish of St. Peter, Salzburg. The visit will grant insights into derived research results and explain employed conservation techniques. Conservators will also share their experiences with conservation advocacy.
