About

The 'Grotesque Fresco with Cherubs' 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 Master of Arts.

Please note the picture on our website is only an illustration of the final authentic handmade fresco. Color tonality and details can change according to the artist interpretation and technique. This results in a unique and personalized work of art.

AUTHENTIC FRESCO

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.

Fresco painting technique

FRESCO WALL REMOVAL

After the wall painting is dry, the first layer of the plaster can be removed and transferred to a textile canvas.
This is possible with the combination of soluble glues and canvases, a technique perfected since the 17th century for the restoration and conservation of ancient works of art.

Thanks to this procedure we can obtain authentic frescos on canvas, which can be stretched on wooden frame or glued onto the wall the same way wallpaper is installed.
