Heaven, detail On his return from the West, Sargent, as was his custom, climbed the scaffolding himself and made numerous final adjustments to his paintings, including the attachment of relief details in gilded Lincrusta-Walton, a ribbed wall-covering material. Sargent used Lincrusta-Walton to heighten the visual impact of specific areas of the murals.
