He looked at the Turner portrait but did not like it and wanted to know if he could have a few sittings with Turner. advised this could be awkward for the Agency. If we agree that there should be sittings, then would take it up with the DDA and see what could be done. She asked whether the FAC wanted the portrait copied as is, whether we wanted the actual sittings, or whether we wanted the artist to work from photographs. The concensus was that should go to the DDA and propose the sittings and if the DDA and Turner are willing, have him sit. by d also brought up the technique suggested Jat the last meeting whereby a full- size photograph of the original painting is lifted on to a new canvas and brush strokes added. She said that the company referred to by is very interested in doing this and will do it free of charge for one portrait just to see what can be done.

They,have been having trouble with temperature and humidity in the paper storage area They would like to install the Kelly Rapid-Roll Door with each of these doors. The Kelly door is a plastic, motion-sensored door that is up and down in four seconds. He said that their main concern is employee comfort and temperature and humidity control of the warehouse area. One Kelly door would be installed on the exterior of the present exterior door and another Kelly door would be installed on the interior of the present interior door.

She had several samples of window film of varying degrees of color she showed the members.

It was the general feeling that we would not want to use a film so dar k that it would make the corridors appear much darker. will come 25X1 back with other samples and the specific egrees of light reduction with each one whenever she can get them. 6.
