More Art in the Pantheon in Rome

The Pantheon, like other Catholic Churches in Rome, Italy, is home to an impressive collection of art.  Close to the entrance of the Pantheon, on the right as one enters, is a 1686 painting of The Madonna of the Girdle and St. Nicholas of Bari by an unknown artist.  To the left as one enters the Pantheon is a 1638 painting of The Assumption by Andrea Camasse.  In niches in the interior are sculptures of St. Anne and the Blessed Virgin by Il Lorenzone and St. Anastasio by Bernardino Cametti.
