Sant'Ignazio: Fresco In Altar Apse

Posted by

Our walk through Sant'Ignazio reveals another fine painting from Mr. Pozzo: this fresco in the altar apse recalls life and apotheosis of St. Ignatius.

A wonderful image and captured very dramatically.

Its amazing how much is going on, the figures have filled the whole frame.

@JoeB: It's an (idealized) life in pictures. You can see it here above the high altar.

Gorgeous...has a bit of a fish-eye feel to it! Great job as usual!

Nice picture. I like the round shape framing the fresco.
