Art of the Fresco

The fresco paintings which characteristically cover large areas of wall in so many Renaissance churches and palaces also serve to offer an insight into the production methods of the artist’s workshop.


The fresco paintings which characteristically cover large areas of wall in so many Renaissance churches and palaces also serve to offer an insight into the production methods of the artist’s workshop. The technique of painting onto fresh, wet plaster involved a team-working expertise that could translate the artist’s design into a finished work, while also offering scope for complex compositions in a range of changing styles. As well as examples form the Renaissance, this talk looks at the fresco revival of the 19th century.
