The book is about the visual impact of the imagery in four important European gallery decorations. The imagery is seen in conjunction with 'readable' and symbolically 'coded' meanings; thus the study does not merely subject these decorations to formalist aestheitc principles. The visual meaning sustains generally the verbal and readable messages, but it also extends and elaborates this meaning, in subtle ways disturbing or usettle it.Occasionally, the visual meaning comes forth as an undercurrent or complication, deviating from the proclaimed and symbolic meaning. The studied sites are: Galerie François Ier at Fontainebleau; Galleria Farnese in Rome; Galerie des glaces at Versailles; and Karl XI:s Gallery in Stockholm.
