OPERA DE NICE, SPECTACLE DE BALLETS 1957
This chromolithograph poster arrived at the lab in very poor condition. It had been stored folded for a long period of time and heavy creases were visible throughout. In addition, there were numerous small tears and several large losses, especially along the edges of the poster.
The poster was humidified with passive humidification and dried between felts. All the tears were repaired and losses were filled with Japanese paper custom colored with acrylic paints. The poster was housed in a custom made polyester L-sleeve to facilitate safe handling and to provide more structural support to the thin paper.
