PREACHING TO THE CHOIR
PREACHING TO THE CHOIR

Christian Philipp Mueller first encountered the winged-ox crest of St. Luke while curating an exhibition at Arti et Amicitiae in Amsterdam. Adopted by medieval guilds as the protector of painters, St. Luke is considered the first iconographer in the Christian tradition, having painted a portrait of the Virgin Mary. PREACHING TO THE CHOIR traces the evolution in the guild's symbol from 500 through 1900.
