The arches of the Galilee Chapel at Durham Cathedral.
 
 

Basilica of St Julian, Brioude

Interior of the Basilica of St Julian, Brioude, France. 11-12th centuries. The frescos show an interesting combination of geometric patterns, and representative scenes. The drapery painted at the base of the columns is similar to that in the Galilee Chapel of Durham Cathedral. Paint did much to soften the effect of stone.
