Passing through the subjective arts, dadaism, surrealism, and neo-realism. Conservator-Restorer felt the need to deal with dyes of another kind that do not belong to oil and acrylic colors. But too complex chemical compositions, and complex metal, plastic, glass, and ceramic materials. But, tools from which the new required artwork is formed. It was restored and maintained after the death bug had bitten its limbs, as the Italian proverb says.
However, the new restoration and maintenance operations, in which a group of conservator-restorer specialists inaugurated. Its modernity several years ago, by a group of the most famous professors and specialists.
What their ideas reached with the new visual arts. Which entered advanced stages of color concerns, and the visual illusions it raises. May find its roots in many artistic currents that accompanied the general development. In the field of painting photography and sculpture.
It is more with all the artists who had special interests in chromatic and kinetic interaction. And the use of different geometric structures than what we used with the traditional artwork. Which is the canvas made of cloth (canvas) of all its types, cotton, linen, and silk. Besides oil colors, the new artwork represents an accumulation of Wefts.
The transcendence of lines, the distribution of colors, their spread, overlapping or contraction, and extension. Along with the simultaneous and successive contradictions in the composition of the blocks. However, the most prominent example is what was provided by the Russian constructivism group. Or the Bauhaus group, as well as the Dutch Steel group and others.
Which led to programming, the cyber movement, pop art, poor art, land art, body art, and post-conceptual arts. Which appeared in a large number of artists who called their products “informality”. And then by skipping the issue of verification of the reality of industrial society.

But, the great challenges it poses, as it is a creative, mature artistic work, and contains philosophical revelations. This leads to our position as recipients, in a position and a state of permanent dialogue with it, as is the case with any other classic artwork.
In this sense, the new restorer of this type of artwork turns into a “method owner”. Who joins its circles with a large group of workers in this specialty, increasing day after day. However, expanding around it, new studies and specialized. And intensive courses for the finest restorers, architects, archaeologists, chemists, and professors of international art history. To become famous stars in their fields of work, which is based on a kind of modernity that crystallizes day after day. And overlaps with many of the traditional sedimentations.
This type of artwork was determined by its modern image a few years ago. Especially since the beginning of the new millennium, as this type of restoration began to discover by conservator-restorer. Its authentic modernist tendency explores the modernist horizons of different types of art. Especially in the field of every artwork and every artist.
However, we do not want to jump on the facts of contemporary history. Limiting the trend of modernity in restoration and maintenance operations to trends of a conceptual nature.
