Another mural discovered

Beautiful discoveries continue to emerge in the Maastricht station building. During the restoration of the former 3rd class waiting room, a wall painting by the Maastricht artist Harry Schoonbrood was discovered. The work was made in 1962 by order of Mosa and Kristalunie, the well-known ceramics and glass producers from Maastricht.

The artwork is hidden behind a layer of wallpaper that is now carefully removed by Angelique Friedrichs, SRAL restoration expert. It is still too early to say what the condition of the work will be, for the time being some slight damage is visible. The restoration work will be ready in mid-December and the wall painting will be visible to the public again.
