The Art of the Fresco

The sweetest and most subtle form that exists.”  (Cennini, 15th Cent.)
A Fresco

The classical method of painting a fresco was popularised in ancient Greece and Rome and reached its artistic heights during the Italian Renaissance. The revival of fresco painting in Italy in the 20th century grew out of the use of these techniques in art restoration. Now you can enjoy the unique qualities of an authentic wall-hung Italian fresco painting in your home.
Our frescos are executed with the same exacting techniques used by the Renaissance masters. The paintings are done in workable sections while the lime plaster is fresh due to the pigments fusing with the plaster and therefore do not easily lend themselves to correction - speed and mastery is requisite.


A Strappo

The frescos are subsequently tranferred to a stretched canvas a strappo (pulled away) - a preservation technique developed more than two centuries ago. Once transferred, the frescos are treated with aging effects (including scraping, fading, cuts, flaking, exposed canvas - as a result of the transfer or intended - and marble powder treatment) which provide another layer of depth and uniqueness. The a strappo technique can be seen in frescos in museums worldwide. Frescos are beautiful with or without a frame and also available as stunning frescoed mirror frames.

Ancient Art – Modern Home

Our frescos are typically not reproductions rather each painting derives from an artist-original design that reflects the spirit and artistry of a classical fresco or master painting. The fresco designs span the eras from ancient Greece & Rome to the Renaissance, from Art Nouveau to the 20th century masters. Many designs are also available with a trompe l'oeil (3d illusion) effect.
Fresco paintings are unique works of decorative art, produced with sustainable materials, which will enhance the most traditional decor and bring an elegant touch of timelessness to the modern home. ©2022
