Following the completion of the phase 1 of the paint analysis, the Curators decided to show the restored colors of the Hyphen Hall as part of an exhibit on the paint examination. On the right is the restored “Naples Yellow” wall color and the Prussian blue color, made with lead white and prussian blue on the woodwork. The changes to the pigment, particularly the blue woodwork color are due to the fading of the blue pigment and the yellowing of the linseed oil binder.
