Fra Angelico's late Last Judgment is close to Trecento sources, to the school of Orcagna in particular. It was painted when the popular artist had a large studio. Perhaps the painting is by Zanubi Strozzi, who was predominantly a manuscript illuminator. Originally on a single panel, the scene was cut into thirds at a much later date.
