Painted Details

Click the image to see the gallery of painted decoration like hand painted signage, frescoes and grisaille paintings.

Spotted high above street level ~ the beautifully aged and fading hand-painted sign of the once-popular department store La Samaritaine in Paris, France. The store first opened its doors in 1869 and was sadly finally closed in 2005 because the building did not meet safety codes.

A closer look at the patina of a fresco at Gelati Monastery in Georgia. The magnitude of the frescoes at this UNESCO world heritage site can be overwhelming and the details can easily be overlooked.
