Saint Clare (detail)

Bardi Chapel, Santa Croce, Florence

On the window wall of the chapel Franciscan saints are portrayed, standing under painted arcades. One picture has been destroyed; St. Clare, St. Elizabeth of Thuringia and St. Louis of Toulouse can still be seen.

Saint Clare is represented in the traditional way on a very high artistic level.
