In history, there are various masters of stucco art, such as Giacomo Serpotta. One such stucco artwork can be found in Sicily, Italy, in the Oratory of the Rosary in Saint Lorenzo. It is a figure of a nude male sitting and gazing out of a window cornice. The Italians became particularly good at stucco techniques during the Renaissance era, exporting their mastery of the material throughout the rest of Europe.
Afterwards, even church interiors featured stucco designs with fine details and elaborate artistry, especially among German artisans. An example of such a work is The Wieskirche in Bavaria, Germany. While the walls outside of the church are simple, visitors are surprised by the intricate artistry found on the interior walls, using mainly stucco. Today, stucco continues to be a standard exterior for homes, what with its many advantages and potential for beautiful architecture.
