GIOTTO di Bondone
(b. 1267, Vespignano, d. 1337, Firenze)

Last Judgment (detail)

Cappella Scrovegni (Arena Chapel), Padua

The Blessed, men and women, representatives of the secular and the sacred, are accompanied on their ascent by angels. The differently formed, thoroughly individual heads seen in profile, the gazes, the posture of the hands and the whole bodies are focused as if spellbound on the higher goal.
