German Renaissance painted plaster ornament, (1898). Creator: Unknown

German Renaissance painted plaster ornament, (1898). 'Our representations illustrate further details of the ceiling in the large knight's hall of the castle of Heiligenberg mentioned with Plate 72. This ceiling is carved entirely of lime-wood and profusely coloured, specially with blue, red, green, gold and silver. But in spite of this richness of colours and the surprising variety of foliage, tendrils, ribbon-work, figures etc. it does not in the least appear overladen or unquiet, but the total impression on the eye is, as mentioned before, throughout agreeable and harmonious'. Schloss Heiligenberg, in Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany, was built in the 13th century and remodelled in the Renaissance style in the late 16th century. Plate 76 from "The Historic Styles of Ornament" translated from the German of H. Dolmetsch. [B.T. Batford, London, 1898]
