Old War Department Restoration Continues

I am in Washington,D.C. for most of the first five months of 2009 working with Page Conservation on a restoration of an Executive branch office building that formerly housed the War Department. I am working very near the White House.

The building was extensively decorated but unfortunately was over-painted in the late 1940’s. In the photos you can see the room and ceiling frescoes  that we are currently restoring, as well as some of my co-workers.

Dana is pictured alone in-painting on the fresco and  Blanca, Dana, Myself, and Klara are pictured left to right in the  other photo.  The other is a closeup of the designs. After this room is completed we move to another room down the hall.
