Naum Gabo
‘Spiral Theme’ 1941 and ‘Construction on a Plane’ 1937

These beautiful early sculptures by Naum Gabo were made using cellulose acetate and Perspex. Over time some of the elements had become detached and the original adhesives had yellowed. They were cleaned and repaired so that they could be put on display to the public once again.

With thanks to:

Tessa Jackson, sculpture conservator, who assisted with this treatment.
