As Renaissance styles survived late in the city, the appearance of Baroque art was also delayed, but from the mid-18th century Klausenburg was once again at the centre of the development and spread of art in Transylvania, as it had been two centuries earlier. The first enthusiasts for Baroque were the Catholic Church and the landed aristocracy. Artists came initially from south Germany and Austria, but by the end of the century most of the work was by local craftsmen. The earliest signs of the new style appear in the furnishings of St. Michael's church: the altarpieces and pulpit, which date to the 1740s, are carved, painted and richly decorated with figures. An altarpiece depicting the Adoration of the Magi (1748–50) is the work of Franz Anton Maulbertsch. The earliest two-towered Baroque church was built by the Jesuits from 1718 to 1724 on the pattern of Košice and was later handed over to the Piarists...

Excelenta aceasta arhitectura. Este bine pusa in evidenta de lumina care vine din lateral. Un pic de renovare nu ar strica.
O saptamana excelenta!

Hi Daniel, Nice architecture details from Cluj-Napoca (Kolozsvar). beautiful decoration of the facade . Nicely cropped presentation. I see you were there lately. What about the monument near the St. Michel's church? Is it there? When I was in Cluj, I looked for it and finally saw it hidden behind the fence.

Magnifique détail de cette superbe façade baroque. Le cadrage est excellent et la lumière latérale met superbement en valeur ses reliefs.

I love the 4 ornately decorated female statues at the bottom. Good tight framing and superb sharpness & color. The side lighting from the right reveals the textures & forms of the sculptures as well as relief in the architecture. Tfs!
