St. Luke painting the Virgin — It is said, that St. Luke painted many portraits of the Virgin and many Renaissance artists were inspired to recreate their interpretations of this.
"I suppose that Our Lady did not pose for him, but rather that he saw her many times and had her figure in mind to reproduce in a painting. So, we can imagine him silently admiring this or that facet of her physiognomy, and then reproducing it in the picture he was painting." - Prof. Corrêa de Oliveira
THE OX, recognized as the animal of sacrifice, was applied to St. Luke because his Gospel emphasizes the atonement made by Christ’s sacrifice of himself on the Cross.
Artists shown:  Marten De Vos, Giorgio Vasari, Rogier Van Der Weyden, Maerten Van Heemskerck, Derick Baegert, Jan Gossaert, Guercino, Raphael
