Vaulted ceiling painted by Martin Freminet, 1567-1619, begun 1606, with the theme of the Redemption of Man, in La Chapelle de la Trinite or Chapel of the Trinity, 16th century, originally a monastery church belonging to the Mathurin monks under Saint Louis and re-annexed to the chateau under Francois I, Chateau de Fontainebleau, France. The paintings depict the Appearance of God with Noah, the Annunciation, and Christ at the Last Judgement, surrounded by kings de Judah, the prophets and the virtues. The proto-baroque decor is of the Second Ecole de Fontainebleau style. The Palace of Fontainebleau is one of the largest French royal palaces and was begun in the early 16th century for Francois I.
