Santissima Annunziata, Florence
The Cappella di San Luca in Santissima Annunziata has belonged to the artists confraternity or the Accademia delle Arti del Disegno since 1565. Many artists are buried in its vault, including Benvenuto Cellini, Pontormo, Franciabigio, Giovanni Angelo Montorsoli and Lorenzo Bartolini. The chapel is decorated with paintings by Pontormo, Alessandro Allori, Vasari and Santi di Tito. Ten large stucco figures were sculpted by Vincenzo Danti, Montorsoli and others.
Vincenzo Danti contributed in 1571 two stucco figures, those of St Luke and Cosimo I as Joshua.
