CincyArtMuseum CAM #conservation: Objects Conservator repairs fragile Japanese screen.

Cincinnati Art Museum Behind the Scenes in Conservation: Our objects conservator is working on a Japanese folding screen for the upcoming Masterpieces of Japanese Art exhibition. Dated to the Edo period (1615-1868), the screen has delicate bamboo shades set into the cart doors shown in each of its six panels. Over time some of the shades have warped and detached from their frames. The folding screen’s frame is also showing signs of wear. The lacquer is flaking and there are numerous rubs and chips in the surface. The objects conservator is working to clean and flatten the bamboo screens to fit them back into the panels and she is consolidating (applying adhesive) and inpainting losses in the lacquer frame. The painted portion of the screen will be a project for our paper conservator. You will be able to see this screen conserved and on display next year in the “Masterpieces of Japanese Art” from February 14th to August 30th 2015. 4 hour ago via Facebook
