The church in Husby-Sjutolft began to be built at the end of the 13th century and different parts were built as time went on. By the end of the 15th century, the turn had come to build armaments and beat brick vaults in the nave. In connection with these building projects, the artist Albertus Pictor was hired to paint pictures on the ceiling and on the walls.
Today, there are paintings preserved on both walls and ceilings in the armory and in the tower room. In the nave, there are only paintings on the walls because the arches were rebuilt in the 17th century. All paintings have been whitewashed, but have been produced again and are in fairly good condition.
In Husby Sjutolft you can see, among other things, a wonderful painting of a male lion with cubs and the poor St Erasmus who, for his faith, had his intestines weaned from his stomach, while he was boiling in a pot. In the armory you will find the Wheel of Life.
Albertus Pictor has signed the paintings in Husby-Sjutolft. His signature can be found above the door of the sacristy.
