Unknown Masterpieces

Not since Fra Angelico's work in Florence or Giotto's in Padua, have I been so surprised and impressed by an interior so completely filled with engaging frescoes. In the interior of the church of Santa Caterina (e in Galatina ceilings, walls, even columns are painted. And the style is consistent: a mix of Byzantine and early Renaissance influences that works to make a unique artistic statement. More intimate than the uberfamous Sistine Chapel, these relatively unknown frescoes date mostly from the early 15th C and are in remarkable condition.Most, but not all were completed, and you can occasionally see cartoons of the intended works on the prepared walls (an extra attraction for many artists).
