St Mark the Evangelist1486-90
Cappella Tornabuoni, Santa Maria Novella, Florence
In the Gothic vaults of the Tornabuoni Chapel the four Evangelists are floating on clouds.
St Mark the Evangelist is concentrating on sharpening his quill with a knife. The lion at his feet, his symbolic animal, is looking into the chapel with his large eyes.
