Between 1938, when she married Everett Lewis, until her death in 1970, Maud Lewis lived in a tiny one room house near Digby, Nova Scotia Over the years, she painted the doors inside and out, the windowpanes, the walls and cupboards, the wallpaper, the little staircase to the sleeping loft, the woodstove, the breadbox, the dustpan, almost everything her hand touched Her house was a joy to behold, and it became a magnet for tourists as well as a focal point in her village In 1979, after Everett Lewis died, the Maud Lewis Painted House Society worked diligently to raise funds to acquire, preserve, and display the house as part of the cultural heritage of the area as well as a memorial to their beloved artist. In 1984, the house and its contents were purchased by the Province of Nova Scotia for the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia In The Painted House of Maud Lewis, Laurie Hamilton, the conservator at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, shows how all the different parts of the house the building itself, the painted household items, even the wallpaper were catalogued, conserved, and prepared for exhibition The preliminary stages of conservation treatment began in 1996 in a most unusual location the Sunnyside Mall in Bedford, just outside Halifax, where conservators worked in full view of the public The conservators used established techniques and invented new ones to complete their unique project and documented every stage of the restoration photographically. The book also features than sixty five colour photos including several taken by noted photographer Bob Brooks in 1965 for the Star Weekly Today, anyone can visit the tiny house that has become a folk art phenomenon The restoration story spans two decades, but the story of the Painted House continues as each new visitor to the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia finds delight and inspiration in Maud Lewiss joyous vision.
