ANDREA DEL CASTAGNO
(b. 1423, Castagno, d. 1457, Firenze)

Stories of Christ's Passion (synopia)

1447
Synopia
Sant'Apollonia, Florence

The splendid synopias which were discovered when the frescoes in the refectory of the Sant'Apollonia were detached from the walls are today on exhibit alongside the frescoes themselves. They confirm the opinion that Andrea was a quick and lively artist who drew with ease.
