Court of Neptune Fountain Conservation

Conservation of the Jefferson Building's Court of Neptune Fountain

The Architect of the Capitol conserved the bronze sculptures of the Thomas Jefferson Building's Court of Neptune Fountain with a thorough cleaning to remove stains and mineral buildup caused by weathering and fountain water. Cleaning was followed by waxing to preserve the completed bronze luster. The AOC also cleaned the masonry, repairing and repainting the basin to restore the overall visual composition of the fountain.
