Why Restoration?

I always feel like more is accomplished when there is a stunning photo of a John Mallin painting to show what happens when restoration is done properly.

Here is the ceiling at St. Jerome's in Rogers Park on the north side of Chicago. DiPrado did the restoration work in 2004.

The stunning portion keeps me from trying to describe this. My only description is that Mallin sure did a number on this in 1922.
