Christ in the Sepulchre with Two Angels1447
The fresco of Christ in the Sepulchre with Two Angels was painted in the cloister of Sant'Apollonia. Here, as in the other frescoes, the composition is dominated by the perfect balance between the accurate geometrical construction and the genuine participation in the dramatic event.
The splendid synopia which was discovered when the fresco was detached from the wall is today on exhibit alongside the fresco itself.
