A goal of the restorers is to uncover Michelangeloâ€™s original work
if da Volterra has stripped away all layers of paint before he painted, then there is no possibility to uncover Michelangelo's work if they strip away da volterra's work - it does not achieve their goal.
nocilis, that was brilliant !
Chunjuwu, the reason for removing the addition to michaelangelo's work is to uncover the original work. Thus if de volterra has stripped away all layers of paint before he painted, then stripping away his work will not uncover michelangelo's work, and this defects the purpose of the removal.
Do you mean if restorers remove de volterra's addition, these restorers will see nothing?
Hi Chunjuwu, it's not because they see nothing. The restorers removed addition with only one objective in mind:
- To uncover michelangelo's original paintings
we're told de volterra scraped away michelangelo's original painting before adding his own painting.
So if this is true, the restorers by removing de volterra's work will not achieve what they set out to acheive initially - to uncover michelangelo's original work.
So yes, in a way, becuase they see nothing, they do not achieve their aim. So A is the answer.
