Frustrations about Friezes: Themes, Functions and Accessibility

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademicpeer-review


    Study of painted friezes in palaces in Rome, from the periode between c.1400-1600, trying to answer the questions: how should we interpret
    the topics of painted friezes, particularly in minor rooms? Is there perhaps a
    connection between these topics and the fact that they were situated in rooms
    that were only accessible to a select number of people?
