Building ____ // Life of Sgraffito

[loading …92%]

Tuesday morning randomness LEVEL UP on

Sgraffito–> scratching through wet plaster on a wall showing different-colour under surface (2 color)

The title comes from italian “sgraffito” –  a wall decor technique commonly used in Europe to decorate castles and chateaus during the Renaissance.
— Italy in the 16th century

Sgraffito played a significant role during the years of the Renaissance in Italy.  As a simple native art old examples of sgraffito were found in Florence and more specifically in the chateaus , Palazzo Ramirez de Montalvo and Palazzo Peppi  [draft sketch included for the first one to GET you in the subject]

—Germany-Bavaria——Austria

During the 16th century the technique was brought to Germany by the master builders of the Renaissance and taken up with enthusiasm by the formative craftsmen..

—Spain-Catalonia

In Catalonia, sgraffito was implemented in the early 20th century by the Noucentista neo-classical architects and became a recurrent technique in façade decoration.

Trip to ze Moon// Reloaded

sup my minions.

we actually stumbled upon what may be the film restoration to beat all other film restorations — the colour version of Georges Méliès Le voyage dans la lune (A Trip to the Moon) (1902).While the film is far from being lost,  all known hand-colored prints of the film were considered lost until 1993, when a copy, in very poor shape, was turned up by Filmoteca de Catalunya in Barcelona. The print was then acquired by Serge Bromberg’s Lobster Films, who overcame great odds to restore the film in time for Méliès 150th birth year celebration.

Enjoy…
