Wall Paintings

Nearly half of the churches in the Puisaye area of Burgundy have wall paintings. Most of them were originally painted in the 15th and 16th centuries, and after becoming unfashionable in the 18th century were forgotten, hidden beneath layers of paint or plaster until fairly recently. One of the most unusual is the “danse macabre” at La Ferté Loupière Yonne, rediscovered in 1910.
