GIOTTO di Bondone
(b. 1267, Vespignano, d. 1337, Firenze)

No. 32 Scenes from the Life of Christ: 16. Christ before Caiaphas (detail)

Cappella Scrovegni (Arena Chapel), Padua

In the previous frescoes Christ appeared in profile or half-profile. Here his face is shown frontally. In this way Giotto illustrates a change - Christ seems to have lost all his vigour.
