What is a fresco?

Anyone with little or little interest orenlightened in matters of painting and world art, a person from school should know what a fresco is, for fresco is one of the oldest types of pictorial art. It is known that even in the time of the Aegean culture (second millennium BC) the frescoes were already popular and widespread.

Fresco is a technique of wall painting,suggesting that the image is painted over wet plaster, which distinguishes it from similar "a seco" technique. Raw plaster as a base is needed to strengthen the image. When the plaster with the image applied on it dries, a thin transparent calcium film forms on top of the image, which protects the image from external threats, mechanical damage, humidity and other things.

To our time the term fresco began to applynot only specifically to this technique, but also to any wall painting, and for the classical frescoes the concept of "bouillon fresco" is used, which translates as "pure fresco".
