Introduction

Before the conservators began this treatment, they conducted a thorough examination of the murals to assess and document condition problems. Conservation scientists analyzed paint samples to understand the artist’s original materials and techniques, to evaluate the effects of previous restoration treatments, and to determine how the current restoration should proceed. The 2003 restoration built on the survey performed on the murals in 1999 by completing further analysis and a more detailed examination. Throughout the restoration, progress was documented with both film-based and digital photographs.
