Restaurierung italienischer Holztafelbilder mit Groteskendarstellungen aus dem frühen 16. Jahrhundert

Insbesondere die mechanische Vergoldung (von der im letzten Beitrag die Rede war) ist nicht sehr langlebig und kann von einem Restorator erneuert bzw. ergänzt werden. Restoratoren leisten aber noch viel mehr um alte Kunstwerke zu erhalten und zu konservieren. Hier erfährt man an einem Beispiel wie umfangreich die Arbeiten sein können.

Vergoldetechniken

Gestern hatte ich im Rahmen einer Junggesellinnen-Abschiedsfeier einen kleinen Workshop zum Thema “Alles, was glänzt – Vergolden” im Niedersächsischen Landesmuseum Hannover besucht. Ich fühlte mich prompt in meine Studienzeit versetzt als wir ein schönes Referatspapier mit den wichtigsten Begriffen überreicht bekommen haben. 

Es gibt neben den chemischen Vergoldungsarten, zu denen die galvanische Vergoldung und die Feuervergoldung gehören, die mechanische Vergoldungstechnik - die sogenannte Polimentvergoldung in deren Kunst wir eingeweiht wurden. 

Bei der Polimentvergoldung wird der Untergrund mit einem Tränke aus Hautleim bedeckt, darauf kommen mehrere Schichten Kreidegrundierung, die jeweils einige Zeit trocknen müssen.
Die getrocknete Kreideschicht wird fein abgeschliffen, sodass man eine sehr glatte Oberfläche als Basis für die Vergoldung hat. Auf diese Kreideschicht kommt nun eine sog. Leimlösche die dafür sorgt, dass das anschließend darauf gelegte hauchdünne Blattgold am Untergrund haften bleibt.
Das Blattgold wird mit einem Vergoldermesser auf den Untergrund aufgetragen und mit einem Fehhaar- oder auch Dachshaarpinsel angedrückt. Wenn sich das Blattgold mit dem Untergrund verbunden hat, wird es mit einem Achat nachpoliert und erhält so seinen Glanz. 

Soweit die Theorie (die übrigens sehr schön von der Dipl. Rest. Ewa Kruppa erklärt wurde) doch dann kam die Praxis. Ich bin mir nicht sicher, ob es für eine von uns eine gesicherte Zukunft im Bereich der Restaurierung von alten Rahmen, Möbeln, Spiegeln oder Skulpturen gibt. In diesem Bereich wird nämlich nicht nur die Begeisterung für alles glitzernde gebraucht - sondern auch bestimmte motorische Fähigkeiten, eine ruhige Hand und viel Geduld.
Wir haben fast das gesamte Alphabet vergoldet und für den Anfang war das Ergebnis gar nicht mal sooooo schlecht war. Mir persönlich liegt dann doch eher die Theorie.

Marvel Comics Writers Explain Why They're Making Thor a Woman

The Abyss Table by Duffy London

Pauline: Was den Vorgang selbst betrifft, ist es immer wieder interessant, sich mit Thomas Carlyles “Die Französische Revolution” zu befassen. (…)
Swan: Wie lautet seine Hypothese kurz zusammengefasst?
Pauline: Die Menschen sind dumm und böse, insbesondere die Franzosen. Sie lassen sich durch Macht immer leicht verführen und in den Wahnsinn treiben, weshalb sie von Glück sagen können, wenn sie überhaupt irgendeine gesellschaftliche Ordnung haben, aber je härter, desto besser.
Swan: Also gut, was ist dann die Synthese?
Pauline: Es liegt im besten Interesse des Einzelnen, allgemeines Wohlergehen zu erreichen. Menschen sind dumm und böse, aber manche Bedürfnisse sind so dringend, dass wir für deren Befriedigung arbeiten. Wenn sich die eigenen Interessen mit dem allgemeinem Wohlergehen decken, dann werden auch böse Menschen alles Nötige tun, um allgemeines Wohlergehen herbeizuführen.
Swan: Sie werden sogar eine Revolution durchführen.
Pauline: Ja.
Swan: Doch selbst wenn die bösen, schlauen Leute um ihrer selbst willen das tun, was für die Allgemeinheit gut ist, dann gibt es immer noch dumme Leute, die noch dazu böse sind, und die reiten dann alles in die Scheiße.

Aus “2312” von Kim Stanley Robinson
