Munch’s Paintings in the Aula of Oslo University


Project outline l.jpg

Project Outline

  • First Phase: monitor humidity, temperature, airborne pollutants and soiling characteristics

  • Second Phase: examination of technique and condition, documentation

  • Third Phase: removal of one of the paintings to evaluate feasibility of remounting

  • Fourth Phase: submit proposals for adjustments of building, treatment of paintings

  • Fifth Phase: implementation of accepted proposals (cleaning)

Particle Size


Slide10 l.jpg

Particles within the 0.1 to 2 micron range

Investigation will focus on this range of particle size because:

  • The black tar-like particles from high temperature combustion fall into this category.

  • This range also includes sulphur dioxide and oxides of nitrogen together with ammonia.

  • This is the largest group of particulates which absorb pollutant gasses and vapours – they are therefore the highest risk group.

Possible mechanisms for dirt deposition l.jpg

Possible mechanisms for dirt deposition

  • Themophoresis

  • Moisture differentials

Thermophoresis l.jpg


Thermophoresis: Particle motion in a temperature gradient, from a hotter to a colder region

Reasons for thermophoresis l.jpg

Reasons for Thermophoresis

  • The fibre board backing acts as thermal insulation.

  • Air flow/ cold bridging due to joints in back board cause temperature differential across the surface of the painting.

  • Differential surface temperature results in differential dirt deposition

Moisture differentials l.jpg

Moisture differentials

  • Moisture transference from the verso via joints.

  • Higher moisture content = stickier surface

Proposed monitoring l.jpg

Proposed monitoring

  • Thermohydrographic measurement

  • Real time dust deposition (reflectance)

  • Environmental surface monitoring (Geletin lifters)

  • Thermal imaging

  • Colorimetric measurement of test samples
