The 'Paulina Borghese as Venus' Fresco is one of our Antique Fresco Collection. This fresco represents Paulina Borghese, posing as Venus Victoria, after Antonio Canova monumental statue with a turquoise-blue background. One of Canova’s most masterly sculptures, his marble portrait of the beautiful Paulina, sister to Napoleon. You can find a 'Paulina Borghese, posing as Venus Victoria' statue in our Sculpture collection as well (ref.no.:SCRO4401018).
Our frescoes are all made by qualified Italian artists in a studio in Italy.
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.
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.
