Restoring Rothko: Science & Art come together to harmoniously turn a wrong back into a right.

Restoring Rothko: Science and Art come together to harmoniously turn a wrong back into a right.

A short documentary film follows the restoration over 18 months of Mark Rothko’s ‘Black on Maroon’ 1958 painting that was vandalized in October 2012 with graffiti ink.  This wonderful short film shows the journey of the intense work done by the conservation team and colleagues of Tate to undo the savage attack done to the Rothko painting.

  This film is a fascinating insight where science and art come together to harmoniously turn a wrong back into a right. I enjoyed it a lot. I also learned a few things about Rothko as well. One being that he kept his process very secret as he didn’t want people being obsessed by his technique while over looking the artistic experience from his artworks. 

Quote: “ Over nine months the team researched methods for removing the ink from the delicate paint layers, using special test canvases to assess the appropriate solvents and cleaning methods. Rachel then spent a further nine months working on Black on Maroon itself, removing the majority of the surface ink before restoring the painting’s surface.”
