Restorers understand the soul of the artist. That's what we've learned through our conservation projects at AWA. No one like a restorer can get to the heart of a painting and truly understand its maker. This is why we asked conservator Sandra Pucci what she could tell us about Vittoria Morelli's Interior with Figures. Here are her views: "This painting is introspective, she paid a lot of attention to the message she is trying to give. It is a slice-of-life piece depicting a precise world. It represents a specific fashion, specific years. Everything about it, the jewelry, the embroidery on the table cloth… The clothes. The way they are posing and the colors she uses. The maid, for example, occupies a large part of the scene – 50 percent of the scene even. She's like a pillar of the painting. It's a message of social organization. It's a painting by woman who has a capacity for analysis. It's a closed, introspective piece."
