The monastery church at Lagoudhera, Cyprus, is notable for an almost complete decoration of Byzantine wall painting, dated to 1192. These paintings present the finest surviving example of the elegant linear style of the second half of the twelfth century. In this work, David and June Winfield discuss the language of Byzantine church decoration, methods of plastering, proportional rules, system of coloring, and the working methods of the Byzantine painter.
