Meeting History - Quebec City by MichelLalonde Meeting History - Quebec City by MichelLalonde
Meeting History - Quebec City
Quebec City, Quebec, Canada

This fresco was created in 1998 by a team of nine artists from Lyon and three from Québec. The striking trompe l'œil took the 12 artists nine weeks to complete.

The work springs from the imagination, rather than from an existing panorama, with the four seasons illustrated in order from top to bottom. The artists drew inspiration from several geographic, urban and architectural features of the area. Details such as the Cap aux Diamants, the Upper Town, the hill and stairs, the fortifications, the roofs, the windows and the texture of the materials give the fresco its authenticity.

Dotted throughout the fresco, 16 major figures bring the history of Québec to life. SOURCE : [link]
