The location of an inconvenient roadway prevented an architect in 1477 from making a church in Milan as grand as he’d hoped — so he painted one of the earliest examples of trompe l’oeil in the history of art in a shallow niche that’s only a few feet deep.


Why he didn't instead use a smaller footprint for the church, and then have a nice deep cove behind the priests? 

trompe l’oeil is one of my favorite art forms
