This is the ceiling in the HofKirche at the Residence in Würzburg. Amazing. The whole place is frescoed and my neck hurt from staring at ceilings all afternoon. It was really impressive. And the stucco work, man. The guy who did the stucco work went crazy and let me tell you, I know why. That place is huge and no two elements could be the same. Poor schmuck. At least Tiepolo included him in the big fresco over the grand staircase. I would have taken pictures of the whole place, but inside it wasn’t allowed and the docents were really bitchy about it.
