Conversion of Saul is a fresco sometimes referred to as Conversion of St Paul.

This stunning fresco can now be found at the Cappella Paolina, Vatican Palace in Vatican City.

This painting took Michelangelo in a new direction with a more mannerist approach, underlining his constant desire to try out new techniques. This bold approach unfortunately did not get sufficient support from academics at that time, though, and left this painting being considered below the standard of much of what he had produced earlier in his career.

Art experts of more recent centuries have shown a far greater respect for this painting and the later work of Michelangelo in general, with Mannerist art being seen far differently now than to when it first appeared across the art world.
