Conservation Upkeep: The Dining Room Ceiling

While strides are being made in our major projects, we also have smaller upkeep projects in the planning for the off-season.
Last conserved and restored in the late 1980’s, some may have noticed the tromp l’oeil decoration on the Dining Room ceiling has exhibited paint loss and flaking for some time. This month, conservation staff will be re-adhering flaking paint and retouching the past work done to the masterful faux paneling by original Mansion artist Giuseppe Guidicini. Be sure to check out the newly conserved ceiling when the Mansion opens May 1 and stay up-to-date with this and other exciting projects in the News section of our website!
