The author traces the decision to use mosaics as a means of interior decoration, planning and organization of work, and the execution of the mission between 1578 and 1963. The art of mosaics was revived in Rome during the late 16th century when a period of long neglect, a group of theological, archaeological and architectural factors made it seem an inevitable means of decorating the church New.
The classical Christian medieval mosaics were used to decorate the churches, including the original Saint Peter, completed by Constantine in 326 AD, and the historians of the Reformist Church were looking for Roman Catholic roots for the new basilica decorations. Five doctrinal themes for the main sections of the building were established.
The first caricatures were made by leading artists Raphael, Caravaggio, Petro da Cortona, Bossin and Guido Rini, and the Vatican's mosaic studio was developed to translate the paintings into mosaics. (The studio was officially established in 1727 and continues to provide mosaics on a commission basis to places around the world.) Some artisans have become artists' designers, while some artists have become artisans. Gradually, the original Baroque aesthetics were modified, for example, by the return of the nineteenth century to pre-Renaissance patterns and neo-20th century Impressionism.
The authors' research included the study of original cartoon drawings and comprehensive studio archives. The stunning and stunning images were taken under his guidance by Vito Rotondo.
St. Peter's Mosaic will be valuable to the specialists and students in the history of art, architecture, church history, archeology, and will interest any reader who loves Rome and its monuments..
