Follow the restoration of an old treasure
The conservators restored the many flower paintings in the Gottorfer Codex album over the course of four years.
The albums had never been on public display before the exhibition Flowers and World Views– they were in too fragile a state. After several years of conservation work it was finally possible to exhibit the works.
