The Liebieghaus Department of Conservation
The primary task of the Liebieghaus Department of Conservation is the maintenance of the collection. The condition of the works on exhibit as well as those in storage is checked at regular intervals. The entire holdings are moreover continually examined with a view to the need for restorative measures.
In addition to the conservational and restorative activities, the department attends to a wide range of matters which arise within the framework on loans. Objects for which the Liebieghaus has received loan requests are assessed as to their transportability, and conservational and preparatory measures such as new display mountings, glazing and suitable packaging are carried out where necessary. From the conservational point of view, the department also oversees changing exhibitions in the Liebieghaus as well as external exhibition projects carried out in cooperation with other museums.
