より実践的な経験を積むために、修復の都フィレンツェで学ぶことにしました。多くの事例に触れ技術の向上を目指し、最新の処置法や素材などもしっか り勉強していきたいと思います。こちらでの生活の様子やイベント、週末に訪れる教会や美術館などもお伝えしていきたいと思います。宜しくお願いします。

In order to add more practical experience in my career, I decided to study in Florence, the home of restoration work. I wish to improve my painting restoration techniques through experiencing various types of restoration works as well as learning the latest restoration techniques. I am looking forward to letting you know about my daily life in Florence and my weekend visits to churches, museums and so on.

以前洗浄をした絵画の修復作業に戻ります。写真はキャンバスを古い木枠から外した状態で、前回の修復から100年程経過しているため、裏面には埃や煤がたまりかなり汚れています。
専用の刃物で汚れを取り除き、新しい木枠に張り込みます。

I went back to the restoration work of the picture that I finished washing. This is the backside of the picture with the wood frame off. Since it has been about 100 years since the last restoration, it’s quite dirty with accumulated dust and soot. By using a special blade, I got rid of the dust and then put it into a new wood frame.

欠損部分を石膏と膠をまぜた詰物で埋めていき、刃物で削って整形していきます。この作業ではできるだけ部屋を暗くし、光を斜めからあてて表面の凹凸がよく見えるようにします。

Then I filled in the defects with the mixture of plaster and glue. After that I shaped the filled parts by scraping with a blade. You have to make the room as dark as possible and light the picture so any unevenness shows up as a shadow.

液状の詰物が乾いて固まったら、周りの絵具層の高さまで削っていきます。その後カーブのついた刃物や細い筆を用い、筆跡の凹凸を丁寧に再現していきます。

After the fill-in fluid dried and hardened, I scraped it to the level of the surrounding paint color. Then I rebuilt the precise brush traces using curved blades and skinny brushes.

週末に、フィレンツェ近郊のスカンディッチにあるMulinaccioを見に行ってきました。1600年代中ごろに作られた水力を利用した穀物等の粉砕場で、アーチと3層の構造からなっています。
1730年代には使われなくなり廃れていきますが、自然と一体化しつつある独特の美しさがあり、現在ではトスカーナの隠れスポットガイドブックなどでも紹介され、密かな人気を呼んでいます。
緑が多く空気も澄んでいて、散歩コースとしても最適です。

On the weekend, I went to see Mulinaccio at Scandicci just outside of Florence. There is an old mill made back in 1600’s with a beautiful arch.
It’s not in use since 1730’s, but it still remains beautiful together with surrounding nature.
Great place to go for a walk in a clear air.
