Paint sampling of Raine House statues

Conservation artist Pedro da Costa Felgueiras has been taking paint samples from the original Raine House statues, currently on display at Raine’s Foundation School in Bethnal Green, to inform the restoration of the replicas for the house. The samples will be sent for further microscopic assessment by paint expert, Catherine Hassall, and Pedro will then use traditional pigments and techniques to match them exactly. We look forward to the results…
