Church of St. Agatha - Kanfanar

The frescoes, which are one of the oldest in Istria, are situated at the church of St. Agatha near Kanfanar built most probably in the 11th century.

Geometrical bordures repeat the ornamental repertoire characteristic of Carolingian painting.
The characters of Apostles in the apse are one of the best preserved part of the great compositions of the Last Judgement. The Apostles are depicted in simple postures, the static quality of the composition is underlined by the color alternations of their garments.
All the colors were painted onto a layer of fresh, wet plaster (a fresco) except for the white pigment, which has been painted on dry plaster (a secco).
