Location St. Paul's Cathedral, London


St. Paul's Cathedral's dome displays a set of paintings from Sir James Thornhill, who was commissioned to provide them in a monochrome style, illustrating the life of St. Paul about three hundred years ago. St. Paul


We know from Sir Christopher Wren's son that the architect had always intended that the interior of his dome be decorated with mosaics. "For this purpose he had projected to have procured from Italy four of the most eminent artists in that profession; but as this art was a great novelty in England... it did not receive the encouragement it deserved."- Parentalia.[1] So then was when Sir James Thornhill was commissioned to provide monochrome paintings about the life of St. Paul.

Use Subsections Headings

Organize each section of this article so that it has a logical flow. If you intend to discuss one aspect of the origin of a person, place, thing, or idea, identify the appropriate existing section of the article, or create that section if it doesn't exist. Then, make a clear subheading. If you notice that some other information is not organized clearly, rearrange the information, but do so cautiously and responsibly! The goal here is clarity for the reader.

Add links to other articles, but do not link to personal student profile pages or milestone pages. Add media as needed in the appropriate sections.
