    Weak cohesion between the paint layer and the ground layer is a common phenomenon with Rik Slabbinck’s works. This Nude was also damaged by heat, probably a warm light source, which caused further bubbling and craquele in the paint layer. The Nude was first fixated with synthetic glues applied by hand and a small brush in the cracks and from the back of the painting. Then a low-pressure table was used to consolidate the glue through the paint, ground-layers and canvas.
