Frescoes in Danish Churches. Lecture by Mathias


Talk about Danish Medieval frescoes from the Romanesque period to the Gothic, 1100-1534.

I will try to give a historic walk-through of Danish frescoes with a starting point in the church in Bellinge and its wonderful decorations. Throughout the talk I will also discuss other Danish churches. 

Frescoes are a topic full of both artistry, history and science, and I will try to walk you through all aspects of this. Who created them and why? What do they depict? And how were they created?

This is a presentation. Should you be interested in a visit to some of these churches either in connection to or in stead of this talk, I can recommend one of my trips to churches on Western Funen
