Art-technological examinations on Anita RĂ©e

In the frame of the preparations for the exhibition »Anita RĂ©e. Retrospective«, an art-technological examination was carried out on around 70 of the artist’s works on paper and 26 paintings. The examination aimed at an in-depth assessment and documentation of the drawing and painting materials Anita RĂ©e had employed, including special characteristics, such as the use of bronze powders or elements of collage, and the technical developments in the course of her artistic career. Unprecedented in its scope, the project was the first major contribution to the art-technological assessment of artists from the Hamburg region.
