From the coauthor of the best-selling Handbook of Painted Decoration comes this advanced exploration of trompe l’oeil art and technique.

Trompe L’Oeil Panels and Panoramas is a treasury of stunning designs ideal for interior designers and their clients, artists seeking inspiration, or for those simply wishing to copy the images themselves, as the author invites readers to do. (A CD-ROM containing the designs is included for easy transfer and resizing of the designs.)

Step-by-step sketches and carefully selected details of the finished pieces provide an effective demonstration tool, allowing artists to both refine their skills and acquire new techniques to enhance their repertoire. In compositions encompassing classical and fantasy landscape and architecture as well as flora, fauna, and the human figure, Guégan demonstrates the successful execution of elegant wood, marble, drapery, and natural and figurative motifs, for decorative panels and panoramic murals.
Through the thoughtful integration of fine French methods and traditions with contemporary style and innovation, Trompe L’Oeil Panels and Panoramas is an ideal instruction manual and a useful reference tool for anyone working in interior design and decoration.

CD-ROM includes easy-to-use screen-resolution TIFF files of every trompe-l’oeil painting.
300 color illustrations

About the Author:

Yannick Guégan author of the chapters on marble, wood, friezes and ornaments, and drapery in The Handbook of Painted Decoration (Norton), is an expert decorative painter and lacquerer who has practiced his trade for almost forty years. In 1982 he was awarded the title Meilleur Ouvrier de France for decorative painting and trompe l’oeil, the highest French distinction in the trade. He is the founder of the Institute Guégan at Mesquer-Quimiac in Brittany, where he teaches the techniques of decorative painting to students from around the world.

Review:

You're guaranteed to find the perfect picture for your wall. . . Copy one of these designs and the rich colors and realistic look will transform your home into another world. --Beth Olsen"

An inspirational resource for any readers wanting to learn more about this art form. The book in part celebrates trompe l'oeil's colourful past, but adapts the traditional style, with inspiration for the future. Learn how decorating walls can be more interesting than watching paint dry. "
