Painted Murals – Grisaille/ Monochrome by Marc Potocsky ct ny
Grisaille French: gris [ɡʁizaj] ‘grey’) is a term for painting executed entirely in monochrome or near-monochrome, usually in shades of grey. It is particularly used in large decorative schemes in imitation of sculpture. Many grisailles in fact include a slightly wider colour range, like the Andrea del Sarto fresco illustrated. Paintings executed in brown are sometimes referred to by the more specific term brunaille, and paintings executed in green are sometimes called verdaille.
Grisaille or tone on tone are strikingly beautiful and create a classic feel that ads softness and romantic and faded barely-there effect that only grisaille style painting has. Sometime executed like a drawing other time like a 3 dimensional bas-relief. Grisaille type murals allow for the rest of the rooms furniture and accessories to pop forward and stand out.
The following are different murals done by artists and decorators from around the country. Enjoy!
