gunter: you certainly don’t get more ‘theatrical’ than that, but all in the best possible taste (give me that over theatrical rococo puplits any day). Is this church officially ‘closed’? That wouls be a real loss and let’s hope an appropriate alternative use can be found for it.
The ancient Greeks certainly did and I seem to remember from my only visit to Athens that there is a recconstruction of a stoa that is brightly coloured, but the colours were reds and blues and golds against that stunning pentelic marble and in bright sunshine, and it all seemed to work. The reds and yellows in St Paul’s might be a bit over the top, but paint can be changed; trick is to avoid the ‘jobbing painter’ or the ‘Schull effect’, which techniques owe more to Technicolor than good taste.
