The monastery church at Lagoudhera, Cyprus, is notable for an almost complete decoration of Byzantine wall paintings in good condition, dated to 1192. These paintings present the finest surviving example of the elegant linear style of the second half of the twelfth century. The painted decoration constitutes a great collective work of art.
The book explains the language of Byzantine church decoration,
methods of plastering, proportional rules, system of colouring, and
working methods of the Byzantine painter.
