This series of frescoes relies heavily on the work of a contemporary, the German artist Johann Friedrich Overbeck (1789-1869), a Catholic convert who lived and worked for most of his life in Rome. Overbeck was dedicated to the revival of Christian art, and was a founder of the Lukasbund, which became an influential brotherhood of artists known as the Nazarenes.
