Frescoes in the Green Cloister of the Santa Maria Novella in Florence
by Paolo UCCELLO

The walls of the cloister belonging to the Santa Maria Novella in Florence were frescoed with scenes from the Old Testament in green and reddish colours (hence the denomination of Green Cloister) by Paolo Uccello and his followers in the 15th century. The frescoes, badly damaged due to the exposure to weather for centuries, were partly detached and restored.
