Art-technological examinations on Anita Rée

As a project accompanying the preparation of the exhibition Anita Rée – A Retrospective, around 70 of the artist’s works on paper as well as 26 of her paintings underwent an art-technological examination. Aimed at investigating and documenting all aspects of Anita Rée’s use of drawing and painting materials, it included the examination of special features – eg. bronze powders, or elements of collage – and it traced the development of  the artist’s techniques and materials over the course of her career.

The project was the first major contribution towards an art-technological documentation of the work of artists from the Hamburg region.
