The majesty of architecture affords us a glimpse into the past, its opulence, culture, and historical significance. The restorer's craft concentrates on returning an object, a building or a room to its original appearance.
What did the room look like? This is the restorer's guiding question, its answer grounded in technical expertise, aesthetic sensitivity and respect for historical context.
Clues can come from a chip of paint or the chemical removal of over-paint to see what lies beneath the surface. In the end, the restorer reveals an image of truth, through which an artist's or architect's original intent shines for many generations to come.
