St Luke

San Maurizio al Monstero Maggiore, Milan

The church of San Maurizio was built between 1503 and 1518 inside the Monastero Maggiore, the convent of the Benedictine nuns. All surfaces of the single nave, the presbytery, the chapels and the vaults are covered by 16th-century frescoes executed by many artists, including Paolo Lomazzo, Bernardino Luini, Giovanni Boltraffio, and Vincenzo Foppa. The composite decorative scheme is in harmony with the Renaissance architecture of the church.

Foppa's St Luke decorates the vault.
