Flagellation of Christ

c. 1320
Lower Church, San Francesco, Assisi

The picture shows one of the scenes from the life of Christ painted by Pietro Lorenzetti on the vault of the south arm of the western transept of the Lower Church. Noteworthy are the many lively architectural details depicted in the scene.

The scene is set inside a deep portico, lined with precious marble and adorned with lively, figured architectural elements.
