This book is a simple but in-depth tool for approaching and understanding the fascinating and somewhat mysterious world of fresco painting. From the preparation of the wall, the various layers of white-wash, the cartoon drawing, up to the final touches, every phase in the creation of mural paintings is analyzed in a detailed way and richly illustrated with appropriate drawings and tables.
Your guide for this fascinating tour is none other than the legendary Beato Angelico, who in a make-believe dialogue with his student Benozzo Gozzoli unveils every secret in the art of fresco painting.
