St. Brice in Kalnik is an exceptionally valuable ecclesiastical structure due to the preserved historical layers, the artistic scope of the partialy preserved wall paintings from the 14th century, and the rare example of a complete late medieval wall painting in the shrine. Ana Deanović discovered, restored, and evaluated the wall paintings in mid-20th century. The staff of the Croatian Conservation Institute continued her work in 2012 and started extensive archival, scientific, and conservation research. They confirmed the assumptions about the architectural genesis of the church from the 14th to the 20th century, and the original materials and techniques used in the earliest phases of the church. Along with the previously unknown earlier architectural elements, four new fragments of wall paintings belonging to the same series characterized by quality Italian Trecento were discovered.
During the European Year of Cultural Heritage, the completed phase of archaeological research and the presentation project of the medieval hillfort of Turčišće – Gradišće at Domašinac will be presented.
Conservation-Restoration Work and Research on Two Altarpieces from the Churches of Our Lady of Carmel and Domino (All Saints) in Dubrovnik
The Church of St. George is located in the north part of the old town Buzet, on its highest point. Its interior is simple, longitudinal in shape with a raised shrine and subsequently added apse. Preliminary protection of the wall paintings in the church began in 2002 and was soon followed by a comprehensive conservation of the interior of the church, done entirely by the Croatian Conservation Institute.
