As I continue to explore the possibilities that cold wax medium has to offer, I feel I have just scratched the surface! 🤓🎨 #coldwax #brigittebalbinot #fineart #artist #surface #texture #patina #oldwalls #frescoes #history #nature #cvp
the soaring #arches inside the #stvituscathedral in #prague are quintessential to #neogothic #architecture , and form several catacombs and niches; many of which are decorated with breathtakingly beautiful full height #frescoes . the ornately carved wooden #balcony on the right was where royalty, the aristocracy and the gentry would sit during mass.
Discovered only in 1999, the frescoes in the basement of Siena Cathedral are unknown authorship. They date back to the 13th century, depicting scenes from the passion of Christ and the Old Testament.

The #Church_of_Panagia_tou_Moutoulla is located on a hill above the village of #Moutoulla and was inscribed on the #UNESCO #WorldHeritageList in 1985, which includes nine other painted #Byzantine churches of the #Troodos range. The church was built and decorated with #frescoes in 1280. The painter used elements from the painting developed in the crusader lands of the East, in Cappadocia, Crete and generally in remote Greek lands. Η Εκκλησία της Παναγίας του Μουτουλλά είναι κτισμένη σε ένα λόφο πάνω από το χωριό Μουτουλλάς. Από το 1985 περιλαμβάνεται μαζί με εννέα άλλες τοιχογραφημένες βυζαντινές εκκλησίες του Τροόδους, στον κατάλογο των Μνημείων Παγκόσμιας Πολιτιστικής Κληρονομιάς της UNESCO. Ο ναός κτίστηκε και τοιχογραφήθηκε στα 1280. Ο ζωγράφος χρησιμοποιεί στοιχεία της ζωγραφικής που αναπτύχθηκε στα σταυροφοριακά κρατίδια της Ανατολής και στην Καππαδοκία, την Κρήτη και γενικά σε απομακρυσμένους ελληνικούς τόπους. Thank you @dimispapa for this amazing shot! 👌💪
For our stay in Siena, me and my friends chose a hotel which is an ex monastery and still has many features that remind of when it was inhabited by nuns or monks, whatever they were: at the first floor, near my room, there was a chapel/choir, the furniture around the hotel are antique and late-gothic and (the most stunning fact in my opinion) they let you have breakfast in the cloister, but that only during summer, in winter or when the weather isn't that friendly, they have a beautiful frescoed hall. Also, they have low prices and they're very close to the main square of Siena (Piazza del Campo). #chiostrodelcarmine #siena #tuscany #italy #hotel #nicestay #advice #travel #picoftheday #instagram #blackandwhite #blackandwhitephotography #cloister #monastery #friends #havingfun #historyart #artaddict #frescoes
Tourists marvel at the famous ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, which celebrated its first mass over half a millennia ago, on this day in 1483. __ 📷: David Lees/The LIFE Images Collection/Getty Images | August 1959 #sistinechapel #sistinechapelceiling #vaticancity #thevatican #catholicism #romancatholicchurch #michelangelo #italianhistory #tourists #arttourism #frescoes #gettyarchive

Minoan fresco from Knossos. Beauty from around 1500BC.💅
Sinha-Giri (Lion Rock), Sigiriya This took about an hour to climb up (Fitbit people, quickest way to get your steps). Got to see remains of King Kasyapa's pleasure palace and the frescoes on the wall. We were rewarded with rain and strong gusts at the top to cool off. #viiatravels #lionrock #sinhagiri #sigiriya #unescoworldheritage #unesco #mirrorwall #frescoes #watergarden #urbanplanning #architecture #srilanka #travelgram #traveldiaries #travel #explore #visitsrilanka

Paul Mathey ‘ Portrait of Georges Clairin’ the #painter and #illustrator #georgesclairin is shown in front of a large #squared #canvas or #carton with several smaller #drawings attached for #reference . It could be the #underdrawing for a painting or a #design for one of the many #ceiling #frescoes he #painted like the one in the #foyer of the #operagarnier . The props in the corner could be a reference to him being an #orientalist #painter who travelled to #northafrica frequently particularly #morocco and #egypt . It is the only #touch of #colour in a largely #monochrome painting showing #paulmathey ’s skill in working with #shadesofwhite .
PEOPLES&STEEPLES INSTAGRAM PHOTO #2 : CLUE : In the 19th and early 20th Century, Shaw Avenue was home to 3 church buildings. Two are still standing.

my currently favourite "is this person even serious?" face&gesture taken from the world of #Art (which - once again - proves to be an unlimited source of reaction pics). • #Masaccio , Holy Trinity, 1425-27 c. , Santa Maria Novella, #Florence [detail of the Virgin Mary] • IG brutally cropped the second picture leaving out the sarcophagus in the lowest section :( _________________________________________ #instaart #artoftheday #renaissance #renaissanceart #italianrenaissance #fresco #frescoes #XVcentury #15thcentury #trinity #holytrinity #reactionpics #mfw #myfacewhen #stfu #BS #bullshit #🙄 #santamarianovella #firenze #igersfirenze #igersflorence #igerstoscana #igerstuscany #ig_tuscany #ig_italia #igersitaly
Another shot of my beautiful wife admiring the frescoes of the church of San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore. It is easy to see why it is known as the Sistine Chapel of Milan. #travelwithanarchitect #passionpassport
When you’re in Rome, make your way to the iconic Via Veneto, which shot to fame thanks to Fellini’s “La Dolce Vita”. There you’ll find a cycle of frescoes which you should visit, that decorate the restaurant of the Hotel Ambasciatori (now known as Grand Hotel Palace) and painted by Venetian artist Guido Cadorin in 1926. I mention him in my previous post. Cadorin represented a group of characters from Rome’s high society in the 1920s, as they enjoy a lavish reception inside the grand hall itself, where elegant men and women look out from small balconies held up by twisted columns. Among those painted were some notables of the time, such as the architects Gio Ponti and Marcello Piacentini (who had designed the building). Cadorin’s professional faux pas was immortalizing writer Margherita Sarfatti, Mussolini’s biographer and lover. Il Duce, unhappy to see his affair immortalized on the walls, led to Cadorin being cut out of many social and professional circles and ultimately ostracized. Less than a year later, in early 1927, the cycle was covered with silk, and remained hidden until the end of the Second World War. In a city laden with centuries of frescos, you’ll be charmed. #art #arte #fresco #frescoes #roma #rome #italy #italia #guidocadorin #artist #viaveneto
If I was forced to choose just one space to visit I would choose this one - the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua. It is my #1 favourite space and I was lucky enough to go today. Covered entirely with frescoes by the master painter Giotto painted between 1303 and 1305 it is a masterpiece of western art and groundbreaking in terms of its representation of humanity, expression and perspectival space. The main frescoes depict the Life Cycles of Christ and the Virgin Mary with the Last Judgement in the entrance wall. I like it because of its beauty, intensity and significance and also architecturally for the simplicity and humble quality of the space which forms the background to paintings and simple openings in the walls to allow natural light to enter. The whole thing is breathtaking and I recommend everyone to see it if you possibly can. #scrovegnichapel #cappelladegliscrovegni #padua #padova #giotto #frescoes #masterpiece #wonderful #wonderful_places #architecture #architecturelover #architecturephotography #architecturephoto #architecturaldetails #architecturelovers  #architects #archhunter #archilovers #architexture #architectonics_world #architecttura #createexplore #createexploretakeover #exploremore

#Frescoes St. Sofia
🇬🇧↘️ Так костел святого Станислава выглядит изнутри. Камера телефона не может передать всю красоту и масштаб. Я обработала, как могла, но результат далёк от реальности. Будете в Могилёве - зайдите хотя бы на пять минут в костел. Оно того стоит. Фрески создали во 2-й половине XVIII столетия могилевские художники А. Главацкий, Петр, Лукьян и Григорий под руководством Павла Пиотровского. В советские времена фрески сильно пострадали из-за стеллажей - в костеле размещался архив. На сегодняшний день роспись частично реставрирована. ⠀ ✴️✴️✴️ ⠀ This is how the inside of the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin and St. Stanislaus looks. The phone camera cannot capture the beauty and feel of it. I retouched the pics as best I could, but the result is far from how it looks in reality. If you are ever in Mahilyow - try to find at least five minutes to go inside the cathedral and see this beauty for yourself. It is worth it, I promise you. These frescoes were created in the second half of the 18th entury by the team of local artists led by Pavel Piotrovsky (A. Glavatsky, Petr, Lukyan and Grigory). During Soviet times the frescoes were badly damaged by rows of shelves - the building of the cathedral housed an archive. They have been partially restored since then. #Ringriel_Belarus #Ringriel_Mahilyow #Belarus #Mogilev #Mahilyow #travelbelarus #travelmore #travelling #travelblog #architecture #baroquearchitecture #cathedral #vsco #vscocam #bestofvsco #bestofinstagram #Беларусь #Могилев #Магілеў #падарожжа #belinsta #instabelarus #instagood #belvsco #frescoes #mural #religiouspainting #wallpainting #catholic
Villa San Marco - Stabiae "La fortuna aiuta i prodi; dirigiti sulla dimora di Pomponiano". Questi si trovava a Stabia; dalla parte opposta del golfo (giacchè il mare si inoltra nella dolce insenatura formata dalle coste arcuate a semicerchio); colà, quantunque il pericolo non fosse ancora vicino, siccome però lo si poteva scorgere bene e ci si rendeva conto che, nel suo espandersi era ormai imminente, Pomponiano aveva trasportato sulle navi le sue masserizie, determinato a fuggire non appena si fosse calmato il vento contrario. Per mio zio invece questo era allora pienamente favorevole, cosi che vi giunge, lo abbraccia tutto spaventato com'era, lo conforta, gli fa animo, per smorzare la sua paura con la propria serenità, si fa calare nel bagno: terminata la pulizia prende posto a tavola e consuma la sua cena con un fare gioviale o, cosa che presuppone una grandezza non inferiore, recitando la parte dell'uomo gioviale. Nel frattempo dal Vesuvio risplendevano in parecchi luoghi delle larghissime strisce di fuoco e degli incendi che emettevano alte vampate, i cui bagliori e la cui luce erano messi in risalto dal buio della notte." #cit Plinio il Giovane
The paintings in the village palaces of Rajasthan were done by traditional craftsmen (from the potters' caste), who had generally not travelled outside their region and who had probably never seen a European. Thus, to paint scenes from the exotic West to show off the palace masters' new position of power in the British Raj, they relied on descriptions and occasional magazine illustrations. * * #india_undiscovered #haveli #murals #indiapictures #indiaclicks #indianlook #mypixeldiary #indiaphotography #frescoes #indiatravelgram #indiaig #indiaphotostory #southasian #natgeotravellerindia #rajasthani #abandonedplaces #abandoned_buildings #photographyeveryday #bestofthebest #travellingthroughtheworld #wonderful_places #artoftheday #photographers_of_india #deserted #beautifulseasia #urbex #heritagebuilding #incredibleindia #worldtravel
