Trompe l’oeil

Schloss Ambras-4

Schloss Ambras-4a

A renaissance castle is not what I expected in Tirol.

Schloss Ambras Innsbruck has grisaille painting al fresco (grey painting on still-wet plaster) all along the courtyard.

And they are among the best-preserved examples of fresco from the sixteenth century!!
