2024S, Vorlesungen (VO), 1.0 ECTS, 1.0 semester hours, course number S04854

Description

The lecture aims to convey the fundamentals of time-bound surface design of sculptures and buildings regarding materiality (inherent color) and/or additional polychromy (applied finish). The goal is to sharpen the understanding of the significance of respective design mediums (materiality and/or polychromy) from antiquity to the early 20th century and to interpret possible historical changes. In detail, the development of Central European art and architecture from the Renaissance to Historicism will be presented. The conservation survey, including scientific examinations, serves as a basis for insights into architectural and sculptural coloration. These insights will be deepened through individual case studies.

Examination Modalities

Oral presentation of existing colour or surface design of a selected façade or sculpture (group) in Vienna

Comments

The lecture is tailored to the diploma study program of conservation.  In addition to individual material-specific features within the history of art and culture, the procedure for further examinations of polychromy on sculptures or façades is explained.
