Fresco Three Minoan Women Knossos
Minoan Fresco of the Ladies in Blue depicts the women in the open blouse that was typical in the later Minoan Culture.
The fresco fragments were discovered during the excavation of a Minoan site in Crete by the British archaeologist Sir Arthur John Evans. They were uncovered in the west wing of the Palace of Knossos. The fresco was later significantly restored by Swiss artist Emile Gilliéron and his son, Emile, as the chief fresco restorers at Knossos
