ROMANESQUE PAINTER, Austrian
(active c. 1200 in South Tyrol)
Castel Appiano (Burg Hocheppan), Appiano
The interior walls of the Castle Chapel, a small hall church with three apses, of Castel Appiano (Burg Hosheppan) in the southern Tyrolian Appiano (Eppan), are entirely covered with paintings. The detail showing the Annunciation, like all the other paintings, reflects the predominant Veneto-Byzantine influence on the High Romanesque style.
