Fresco Painters of Florence   

From Giotto to Masaccio to Botticelli, the greatest artists of the Italian Renaissance covered the walls of Florentine churches and palaces with beautiful scenes that combine sacred narratives from the Bible with scenes and portraits out of the daily life of the prosperous city. Besides showing the paintings and explaining their content, the course will give a detailed account of how frescoes are made by combining pigments with wet plaster to form a long-lasting image that is part of the actual wall and the techniques that have been used to remove them from the walls (much more often than most people imagine) and attach them to new surfaces.
