This chronological and topographic compilation presents the most famous single and cycles of frescos executed by Italian masters in various centuries using a technique that involves painting coloured pigments onto a layer of plaster not yet completely dry. As an art form, it is rooted in the mists of time, but it was rediscovered at the end of the Middle Ages and proved extremely popular throughout the modern period. From the paintings adorning the walls of Romanesque churches to the great Baroque and Rococo cycles, the seven chapters of this volume, each with an introduction and additional, informative passages, help acquire a greater understanding and appreciation of this art form from the late Romanesque period through to the end of the 18th century.
