Romania - Churches of Moldavia (1)
Monasteries in Bukovina, Romania; Humor, Suceviţa, Moldoviţa, Putna, and Voroneţ.
Sent by Mircea from Romania.
In the European art of the period, the exterior mural painting of the northern Moldavian churches is a unique phenomenon in Byzantine art and a masterpiece of mural art. In terms of the art of Romania, this group of churches constitutes a specific phenomenon, from the point of view of architecture as well as painting. Their exterior painted walls constitute an exceptional aesthetic value, forming a perfect symbiosis between colour, architecture, and surrounding landscape.
