Moses's Testament and Death (detail)1481-82
Cappella Sistina, Vatican
The painting is for the most part the work of Bartolomeo della Gatta. But, amidst the numerous figures that populate the scene, there are some whose anatomical description is full of energy and who convey powerful emotions: e.g. the man with the stick leaning against Moses's throne. Luca Signorelli's hand appears quite obvious in this detail, and in others as well.
