Triumph of the Name of Jesus

1672 - 1679

Both due to fashion and changes in architecture, few ceiling frescoes were produced in the late 17th Century and beyond. This is a remarkable exception, and epitomizes the form. Relying on the dominant illusionistic systems apparent in earlier works, this work is detailed and stirring, combing the highest principles of painting, sculpture, and architecture from the age.
