Restoration - Restoration interventions
Despite a solid policy of preventive conservation of the works, it is inevitable that some will deteriorate and require restoration. Conservation and restoration tasks are carried out following pre-established protocols, which respect the integrity of the work and involve minimum intervention, according to a programme of priorities determined by various parameters, such as requests for the loan of works for temporary exhibitions.
This includes collections of paintings, original drawings and graphic works on paper, as well as the extraordinary variety of sculptures, artistic installations and objects, created using materials as varied as wood, metal, ceramics, plastics, stuffed animals, fabrics and fibreglass. The Department also carries out conservation and restoration treatments for the Centre for Dalinian Studies' extensive collection of documents, which include photographs, manuscripts, magazines and books, among other items.
