Details of the trompe l'oeil gilded panels and mouldings

The original conserved trompe l'oeil paintings were carefully covered so that the designs could be recreated on top without damaging the earlier painting. Reversible materials were used so that the originals could be revealed at any time in the future.

The columns and pilasters have painted trompe l'oeil fluting and all of the gilded areas are painted with trompe l'oeil mouldings and carved details.
