Conservation > Treatments > Jacob Binck, Death and the Foot Soldier
Prior to conservation treatment, the conservator observed that the print was discoloured and showed some planar distortion. This pair of before and after photographs show the improvement in appearance as the result of conservation treatment very clearly. The sense of relief, of three dimensions is very much improved thanks to the enhanced contrast between the ink and the paper. For example the soldier’s thigh, the sleeve of his right arm and the trunk of the tree above his head all seem much more round and full following the treatment.
