Restorations of the Metropolitan Cathedral of Sibiu during 1958 – 1966
The metropolitan cathedral’s history would be poorer without the whole history of its painting. The history of the cathedral’s painting (in its different techniques and styles) is a separate one and is as interesting as the building of the church. In this short article, there are presented the different steps made during the history of the 20th century in order to preserve the original painting and than to complete the painting of Octavian Smigelschi.
Keywords: restored painting, Octavian Smigelschi, Anastase Demian, Iosif Keber, byzantine painting
