grisaille mural of marble relief

mural painting of low relief white marble sculpture in grisaille

trompe l'oeil of carved marble panel

This illusionistically painted trompe l'oeil rendition of a carved marble plaque is painted in grisaille. It is painted after the Victorian medal executed by W.Wyon R.A.
Because of the shallow depth represented, this mural works well when viewed both directly on and at various oblique angles. This form of grisaille decoration often represents decorative plaster work treatments as well as carved marble, and has been used throughout the 17th and 18th centuries to embellish and manipulate the parameters of architectural space. As a form of easel trompe l'oeil it has seen considerable popularity over the century's.
