about this item

During the first half of the 18th century, says Fulco, the principalities of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation witnessed a remarkable efflorescence of palace fresco painting executed largely by Italian artists. First in the Austrian and Czech lands during in the late 17th century, then spreading to Germany by 1700, Catholic and Protestant nobles of all ranks competed with one another to commission ever more lavish decorative schemes that expressed their claim to princely power and political authority. He analyzes how the artists drew on pictorial styles and iconographic programs from Italy and across Europe to embody their patrons' ambitions.
