Southeast Room Paint

June 5, 2020

 

 

Karen Pfeiffer has been working on repairing the decorative paint at the Propylaeum. Can you believe that the base coat of color on the southeast room walls is green? The finish on the walls is a Jazz or Tiffany glaze, consisting of several layers of paint applied in a stippled fashion to achieve a complex color. When Jim Glass presented the history and architecture of the Propylaeum at February Prop Day, he described the décor of the southeast room as French Baroque. Then known as the music room, the Schaf family hired Cincinnati interior designer William F. Behrens to plan and oversee the remodeling. Thanks, Karen, for your work to help preserve this unique

feature!
