Sculpture and painting on wood

photo: CRBMC

Wood sculptures and panel paintings from all over Catalonia are treated at the CRBMC. Most of the projects deal with religious works of art from altarpieces found in churches and museums. Some particularly outstanding treatments carried out by the CRBMC include the Santa Eulàlia i Santa Clara altarpiece (Pere Serra), the Guimerà altarpiece (Ramon de Mur), the Sant Pere altarpiece (Púbol) and the Mare de Déu i Sant Jordi altarpiece (Lluís Borrassà).

Some common problems found are the degradation of the binding medium, cleavage in paint layers, and the accumulation of dirt on the surface. In such cases fixing, unifying, and removing dirt become crucial treatments for the preservation of the work of art. Regarding the reconstruction of missing areas, criteria can vary from the archaeological to mimicry. Finally, this section is also responsible for the display of these works of art after treatment.
Altarpieces can be displayed in two different ways: when the masonry is missing, aluminium and/or stainless steel structures are used; when the original structure is conserved but needs strengthening, stainless steel and/or cedar wood are used.
