(CP Photo) isch outdoor art ery thrills visitors Village antiques in Mayfair LONDON - A new venture has just been launched in Shepherd Market, London's own village in Mayfair. "House of Buckingham" is a former grocer's store, erected in 1860, now stripped to reveal brickwork, ancient beams and a baker's oven, and transofrmed into a spacious antiques showroom with several small display rooms. This is the only antiques shop in Shepherd Market offering furniture, from Tudor to Victorian, and its existence is due to the enterprise of two Americans - Jere Felker from Georgia and Bruce White from Boston, both long-time residents in Britain. Prices range from $12 to over $1,000 and for sale are such diverse antiques as a stripped-down 18th century wall cabinet, beautifully worked samplers and Victorian escritoires. Brussels first or last stop Belgium's Bonus Days9 By EVELYN OLDHAM .., PARTENKIRCHEN, G e r-many - Many visitors who come to this famous resort to ski the highest mountain in Germany, take jumping lessons, skate on the Olympic rinks, curl, or hike along the groomed mountain paths, end up enjoying a less energetic pastime. For the streets of this great winter and recreational centre are an outdoor art gallery with shops, homes and inns, from ground to eaves, covered with paintings more than 200 years old. Walking along the wide Bahnhofstrasse, or narrow streets like the Freuhlings-trasse, is like turning the pages in a book of paintings. In fact, when Goethe was a visitor here he called the town a "picture book alive"- The paintings date from a period -of peace and prosperity, around 1750-1810, when travellers brought back the idea of outdoor wall paintings from northerhn Italy.

Fires and reconstruction have reduced the number of these frescos but they still are to be seen concentrated in Garmisch, in southern Germany, west to the Passion Play and wood-carving town, Oberammergau, and east to Mittenwald, famed for its violin makers. WAS PIOUS AGE Many of the murnls, the products of a piou; _;ge, have a biblical theme. Some are literal interpretations of the Old Testament, with devils in a flaming hell and angels floating on pink and white clouds in a blue sky. Others portray patron saints like St. George and the dragon and some the occupations of the original owners, or a combination of the two, such as a beneficent patron saint smiling down on a hunter and two dairymaids. Despite exposure for 200 years, the colors of the frescos are bright and clear, with liberal amounts of rusty browns, warm violets, mellow greens, rosy reds, cobalt blues and rich yellows. The technique used by the artists literally sealed in the colors. They favored the north and east walls, eschewing southern walls with sunny exposure and western walls open to prevailing winds. In a region of heavy snowfalls, the roofs have wide overhangs, which also have helped to preserve the frescos. PRODUCED OWN STYLE .. Each community produced painters with styles so distinctive that today historians and other experts can identify paintings even if they aren't signed. Mittenwald is noted for its religious paintings. The three drawn to the attention of visitors depict the Saviour on the cross, the twelve apostles, and the murder of Holofrenes by Judith. The last is exceptional because of the play of light and shadow. Also highly regarded is the House of Pilote in Oberammergau. Around the windows and doors, the figures act out the drama and brutal guards leer from the walls. But the Oberammergau facade that delights children and adults most is the Hansel and Gretel House, which at one time was a wood carving school and now is an orphanage. Illustrations from children's stories cover the long front of the building and among the characters depicted are Red Riding Hood, Puss 'n Boots and Rumpelstil-skin. ADD BAROQUE TOUCH Those who couldn't afford to have the fronts of their homes completely embellished with paintings had curves and swirls arched around windows and doors to add a baroque touch to their simple stucco and timber homes. In addition to all of this street art and the magnificent mountain peaks above the towns, there is plenty to see and photograph, including on-ion-domed and steepled churches, town squares with fountains, buildings decorated with wrought iron and painted wooden statues. And there's plenty to do behind the heavy carved wooden doors. Hotels have a variety of restaurants, bars and night clubs for dancing. Shops sell the kinds of things tourists like to take home-pewter, antiques, wood carvings, music boxes, sports clothes and equipment, china, ceramics, copperware, lederhosen, knickers, long patterned socks and embroidered braces for cross-country buffs, loden jackets and embroidered dirndls. Restaurants serve typical local dishes of venison, veal, rump steak and roast oxen with plenty of mushrooms and dumplings. Pastries and other desserts are usually buried under a cloud of whipped cream.
