In the late winter of 2010, Professor Volker Schaible offered LA Art Labs’ founder Kamila M. Korbela the opportunity to work with him on a joint research and conservation project focusing on Giacometti’s mural painting ‘Die Verklärten’. The monumental mural was painted in 1917 to fit the gable of the Memorial Hall in Davos and continues to attract many visitors every day.
