This was done by Melozzo da Forli, who was an Italian Renaissance painter and architect who is well known for his fresco paintings, which are mural type paintings done by using plaster on walls. It's currently found in the Vestry of St. Mark's at the Holy House of Loreto, Italy. I chose this because it is an amazing portrayal of one point perspective, where the vanishing point is located off the painting. Melozzo is also know for his use of illusion, and how it seems as though we are looking up at these angels from a worm's eye view.
