My name is Sarah Schmitz and I am the new House Steward here at A La Ronde. One of the first objects in our care that I noticed when touring the house is this fabulously delicate paper image. It is such a remarkable survivor of the passage of time, being extremely susceptible to light damage in particular. Just looking at it is such a treat, and caring for it another.
