View of the Chapel1354-57
Cappella Strozzi, Santa Maria Novella, Florence
This view of the Strozzi Chapel in the Santa Maria Novella in Florence shows the fresco cycle by Nardo di Cione of the Last Judgment (rear wall), the Paradise (left wall) and the Hell (right wall) executed in the 1350s. The altarpiece is by Orcagna, the brother of Nardo. The figures in the stained glass window are the Madonna and Child, and the Dominican Saint Thomas Aquinas.
Orcagna's altarpiece and Nardo's frescoes form a unified programme.
