In the Marjan de Visser Restoration Workshop, the 12 panels of NH Werkman are being restored.

The restoration of Werkman’s ★ cupboard ★ is based on the correspondence between Werkman and Henkel in 1943 and regularly concerns Werkman’s Hindelooper cupboard. Or rather: Henkel’s cupboard. Because Henkels wants Werkman to paint twelve religious paintings on plywood for him for the doors of his cupboard. It must be representations from the Old Testament.

In addition to the iconography of the depictions, Henkels and Werkman also write about the type of wood used in the twelve panels. Because they have doubts about the quality of the plywood. In addition, Werkman writes about how the panels should be prepared. Werkman also writes about his inspiration and the results. Finally, they correspond about whether or not to varnish the panels.
