Zusammenfassung: Paintings by the artist Frank Stella executed in the early 1960’s are considered the predecessors of American Minimal Art. Using the example of the copper painting Lake City (1963/64), a technical study was undertaken focusing on the metal pigments utilized and the damage they created. This includes a brown discoloration of the paint layer as well as dark fingerprints. These material changes were caused by oxidative and corrosive processes and cannot be reduced without endangering the paint surface. A conservation strategy was created incorporating the issues of patina and artist’s intention. Because the painting features a noticeable scratch, an appropriate retouching method had to be developed. In addition, the importance of preventive conservation when dealing with similar modern paintings was emphasized.
