Product Description:
Painting on Architectural Surfaces Video. This program travels to four locales to examine technical aspects of how frescoes have been painted: a villa in Pompeii, where walls saturated with figures, dense colors, and ornamental motifs functioned both decoratively and ritually; the Basilica of San Francesco in Arezzo, home of della Francesca's Legend of the True Cross; the Salle des Saisons at the Louvre, to view Romanelli's frescoes combined with richly gilded stuccowork; and the Residenz palace in Wurzburg, to see how Tiepolo's trompe l'oeil creates an extraordinary illusory space. (27 minutes.) Art and Design, Art and Photography 2003.
