Legend of St Francis: 12. Ecstasy of St Francis

Fresco, 270 x 230 cm
Upper Church, San Francesco, Assisi

This is the twelfth of the twenty-eight scenes (twenty-five of which were painted by Giotto) of the Legend of Saint Francis.

The five scenes from The Vision of the Flaming Chariot to St Francis in Ecstasy (No. 8-12) are characterized by inferior workmanship, especially in the figures.

This scene was executed partly by assistants.
