Adams Memorial Restoration (Plaster Cast)

About

Saint-Gaudens National Historical Park, Cornish, NH & Guggenheim Museum, NYC (on loan)

2009

 

Robert and his team, in collaboration with the National Park Service, restored the archival plaster of the Adams Memorial held in the collection of the Saint-Gaudens National Historical Park in New Hampshire. The conservation treatment was performed in preparation for an exhibit at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City. The restoration included a reversible mechanical attachment system to the internal armature, removal of loose surface dirt, consolidation of all break edges, chips and losses, and reconstruction of larger losses.
