Colour in Mural Painting

Virtue in Conservation and Restoration

  • Victoria Grădinar Babes-Bolyai University, Romania


Mural painting involves a series of technological processes that encompass the science of methods and also the materials usage and processing means. Through the restoration, no matter the technique used, the original appearance of the painting often alters.  These changes can be caused by historical events, natural calamities, repainting, vandalism, incompatibility between materials, etc. In the process of unraveling them, historical documents and investigation methods specific to restoration are used, all with the purpose of collecting the information needed to establish the intervention methods.
