Abstract [en]

This paper presents results from ongoing investigations of soft and dripping oil paint in art works by CoBrA's Karel Appel (1921-2006) and Asger Jorn (1914-1973). The work is part of the PhD-project Investigation of soft and dripping paint in paintings from 1946-1971 where twenty-four paintings are being investigated. The paintings were chosen to represent a large variety of conditions: some with slightly soft and mainly stable paints, and others with deforming and dripping paints. All paintings chosen had some paint with uneven fluorescence emitted from specific paint colours. Earlier studies have shown that fluorescence can be an indicator of softening paint. The softening paints and drips on the surface of some of these paintings show similar polarity features with mid-chain functionalized stearic acids and azelaic acid moieties. Our findings show there are several physical and chemical alterations within one degradation symptom that have to be understood when conservation treatments are considered in the future.
