I have just been sent a link to a newspaper article about the discovery of a buried 5th century church in present-day Turkey. It contains the earliest existing complete cycle of frescoes, including some hitherto unknown iconographical images. One to watch - here is the link: http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/turkey-historic-fifth-century-church-discovered-underground-city-cappadocia-1540337
The view from my desk
Current work, places and events, art travel, and interesting snippets about Christian icons, medieval art, manuscript illumination, egg tempera,, gilding, technique and materials.
