An extensive survey is being done on the mural Aegean Sea in the Grand Ballroom on the ss Rotterdam. The artist Cuno van den Steene created the mural in 1959. After a restoration in 2007 several damages were caused by the use of the Grand Ballroom through the years. In January 2020 students of the trainings-course Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage of the University of Amsterdam concluded after a quick survey that further investigation was badly needed. Our foundation took the initiative to start a thorough investigation by Willianne van der Sar of Color & Conservation . Together with students of the university she prepares a report that must make clear what has to be done to restorate the mural. The survey is possible thanks to a donation of Stichting De Ziekenfondsbode.
