The Upper East Chapel in Frescoes
This chapel is part of the Bled Castle in Bled, Slovenia.
"There is a chapel on the upper courtyard, which was built in the 16th century, and renovated around 1700, when it was also painted with illusionist frescoes." Taken from Wiki.
"The Gothic chapel is dedicated to the bishops St Albuin and St Ingenuin. It is east-oriented. After the second major earthquake of 1690 the chapel was increased in height and baroque vaults were added. During or shortly after the baroque remake the chapel was adorned with frescoes.
The fresco on the northern wall depicts the German king Henry II and the one on the southern side his wife Kunigunde. The other chapel frescoes are also in a good state of preservation. The frescoes are made in an illusionist manner." Taken from http://www.blejski-grad.si/en/castle-chapel
It is said that from where I took this photograph that you could see the full effects of the 3D effects from the fresco style paintings that adorn the flat and smooth walls. "Fresco (plural frescos or frescoes) is a technique of mural painting executed upon freshly laid lime plaster. Water is used as the vehicle for the pigment and, with the setting of the plaster, the painting becomes an integral part of the wall. The word fresco (Italian: affresco) is derived from the Italian adjective fresco meaning "fresh"." Taken from Wiki.
