RIP Dean. He was an extremely bright, great man and great FLW Homeowner. Over the course of restoring the Davenport House, I occasionally consulted with Dean to learn more about his Coonley Mansion and its restoration. He was always extremely generous with his time and expertise. With his scientific approach, he did a magnificent job with the restoration of the Coonley Mansion, truly one of FLW's greatest works.

I don't remember when we first saw this video, but it certainly wasn't as long ago as 2010, when it was posted to YouTube . . .

It was my introduction to the colors, and the lighting, of the Coonley interiors. The wall-washers above the Niedecken murals caught my eye.

The new material tells us that those murals were able to be recreated using perspective-correcting software applied to photos of the lost murals. Hurrah . . .
