CDR-1227: SR Set: Frescoes

The general term “frescoes” refers here not only to painting on wet plaster (buon fresco), or nearly dry plaster (mezzo-fresco), but also to works painted on dry plaster (a secco). Examples of under drawings or sinopia are included. Scholars Resource offers a good cross section of works ranging from early examples of painting in wet plaster from Minoan Crete to recent works painted within the last century (Diego Rivera), ideally suited to teaching this unique form of painting in art history.
