A Glimpse of The George’s Painted Past

March 19, 2013

 

“Back on High Street’s N side, a little further downhill, the GEORGE HOTEL provides a contrast: (…)”

“On the first floor, a detached panel of 16th c wallpainting: bold swirls of foliage and flowers, two with putti springing from them.”

It is so wonderful that it is saved at all.

Let’s talk about micro-climates, back supports and conservation paneling another time.
