TrueFresco.com has launched it's new online project
"History of Modern Fresco". In this section of our
website we are presenting virtual exhibitions of Modern
Frescoes created between 1900-2000. Frescoes which are just
about to slip through the cracks in Art History, but not in
any way less important than the works of celebrated and
remembered Masters of Italian Renaissance.
Our first virtual presentation that inaugurates this project
is an outstanding Fresco of a prominent American Master -
Peter Hurd. This monumental work was painted during 1953-54
covering over 800 sq. feet. Peter Hurd's fresco can be
viewed in the rotunda of Texas Tech University Museum.
This Fresco is an incredibly important part of our culture.
Unfortunately like hundreds of other frescoes painted during
the last 100 years, it is almost unknown today.
The goal of this project is to bring this magnificent works
back to light and deliver them the attention that they
rightfully deserve. However it would be almost impossible task
without your help! There is practically no available resources
of information for the locations of these frescoes and we
count on your feedback to will help us locate and document
this invaluable part of our Cultural Heritage.
email any available to you information to firstname.lastname@example.org

of Modern Fresco 1900-2000 Forum
