St. Martin, Bamberg: Illusionistic Cupola
This image of the artistic trickery in St. Martin (Bamberg), showing an illusionistic cupola in the wake of Andrea Pozzo was executed by Giovanni Francesco Marchini in 1716. If you would see this fresco from the right angle it would be perspectively correct.
I'm posting this picture to give you an easy opportunity for comparing it with yesterday's shot. The one you can see here is ca. 55 years older, and while the one from yesterday tells a story, this one here is a pure visual effect.
Sorry that I couldn't visit many blogs the last days, too much work and no play. Hope this will change soon.
