The main part of my graduation work was restoration of the Renaissance panel painting of Augustus Cordus’s The Crucifixion / The Last Judgment. This unique artwork is now being restored for the first time ever, and so its study has brought a lot of new information. Using infrared reflectography and X-rays, we discovered an extensive overpainting of The Last Judgment. Removing dust and dirt deposits revealed the artistic quality of The Crucifixion and also the original vibrant colours. In my diploma thesis I focused on the painting technique used in this work within the context of the era’s usual practice. Another project was to restore a polychrome sculpture of the Pietà dated back to the 19th century, where the removal of non-original layers revealed polychromy of an aesthetically higher quality. Restoring Teodor Pištěk’s Racek letící do snu (Seagull Flying into a Dream) was a valuable experience in the field of modern painting. In our final year, we have been working on rare medieval murals in the Church of the Virgin Mary at Karlštejn Castle, where we have carried out a restoration examination of the scenes of the Apocalypse, Relic scenes, and the decoration of the Chapel of St. Catherine using non-invasive optical methods. One another mural restoration experience included the scene of The Judgment of Solomon at the Monastery of the Fourteen Holy Helpers in Kadaň.
