About

The 'Blueish Grotesque Fresco' is one of our Ancient Roman Fresco Collection.

Grotesque in Ancient Rome

"In art, grotesques are ornamental arrangements of arabesques with interlaced garlands and small and fantastic human and animal figures, usually set out in a symmetrical pattern around some form of architectural framework, though this may be very flimsy. Such designs were fashionable in ancient Rome, as fresco wall decoration, floor mosaics, etc., and were decried by Vitruvius (c. 30 BC), who in dismissing them as meaningless and illogical, offered the description: "reeds are substituted for columns, fluted appendages with curly leaves and volutes take the place of pediments, candelabra support representations of shrines, and on top of their roofs grow slender stalks and volutes with human figures senselessly seated upon them."


Our frescoes are all made by qualified Italian artists in a studio in Italy.

About Frescoes

FRescoes are not regular paintings. Pigments are applied directly on a fresh, wet plaster base on the wall. By doing so, colors retain their vibrancy and last longer, remaining beautifully vivid. The painting must be done quickly and skillfully, before the plaster base dries.

Calicot Method

To be able to be transported, our frescoes are made using a special technique, called Calicot Method, in Italian la tecnica a Strappo. This technique is used since the 17th century in case a fresco needs to be removed from its original location.
