This is a startling photo of Mission San Juan Capistrano if you know the mission today. It was taken prior to its restoration at the beginning of the 20th century. This last month, May 2014, Fine Art Conservation Laboratories completed the art conservation or painting restoration of the biggest most important painting in the Father Serra Chapel, Station of the Cross XII or The Crucifixion. This extremely large Spanish Colonial work of art is 12 1/2' tall x 7' wide. Here is the article about the project: http://tipsforfineartcollectors.org/oil-paintings/200-year-old-painting-newly-restored-returns-to-mission-san-juan-capistrano/
