Description 

Report on the condition and restoration of a photograph by Jan Dibbets: Rubens Diptych III (coll. Bonnefantenmuseum, Maastricht; 1993-94). Main problem was the bad adhesion of the photograph to the painted paper support. The glue was investigated and analysed by FTIR. Based on information coming from the artist and his assistant research took place on his technique and use of materials. Small reconstructions were made as well as a series of tests. The photograph was succesfully adhered to the support again by a controlled application of heat and pressure. The complete file, including research data, correspondence with the artist, photo's and drawings is available at the Limburg Conservation Institute.
