San Carlo ai Catinari

< previous > < index > < next >

The fresco above the altar, San Carlo in Glory, was completed in 1646 by Giovanni Lanfranco, said to have been his last work. He had to complete the frescos from memory as the preparatory designs had been stolen. The fresco represents Mary taking San Carlo by the hand and introducing him to the Trinity, surrounded by rejoicing angels and saints.
