The Munch Museum, Olso, announced today that the stolen, damaged and returned “Scream” and “Madonna” will go back on view this summer. Restoration is nearly complete. They were seized by armed robbers in August 2004 and returned two years later.
According to the press release:
The restored paintings will be on display in this year’s summer exhibition, from May 23 to Sept. 26. They will be presented together with relevant artworks from the collection and documentation of the main features of the conservation process.
More details about the conservation of the paintings are here.
In connection with the exhibition, the museum will produce two publications (in Norwegian, English and Japanese) that provide details on the conservation work and report findings of art-historical and conservation-related research on the paintings.
