This truly magnificent, large format volume traces the progress of the fresco from visual stories linked to popular religious belief in the mid-13th century to the increasingly lavish mythological and courtly scenes of the 17th and 18th centuries. More than 550 pages of colour reproductions present some of the world's most treasured works of art, among them, Piero della Francesca's Resurrection, da Vinci's Last Supper and many details of Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel. Introductory text in English, German, French and Dutch.
